Notice of intention to exchange reserve status

The Gore District Council is proposing a land exchange so that the freehold land in Charlton Road, near Wayland Park, will become recreation reserve, vested in the Council, and reserve land known as Hyde Park will become freehold land, in the name of the  Council.

Pest Control

The Council will be carrying out pest control, including night shooting, on Wednesday 23 August and Thursday 24 August at the following reserves:

Footpath closed

Pioneer Park walkway, which runs from the end of Hokonui Drive to Waimea Street, will be closed on Monday 21 August, for repairs. 

Rural Halls and Domains Annual Grants

The Council invites applications for funding from its rural halls and domains grant scheme.

The purpose of the scheme is to assist organisations providing public domain or hall facilities in the rural areas of the Gore District with capital projects and significant works.  Running costs are not eligible.

Application forms are available here [PDF, 594 KB], or can be picked up at the civic administration building in Gore, Mataura Service Centre, the Gore Library or by telephoning 209 0330.  Applications close on Friday 18 August 2017.

MacGibbon Road Traffic Delays

There will be intermittent traffic delays and road closures on MacGibbon Road, between the intersection with Mountain Road and State Highway 1 for about two months, starting Wednesday 28 June. This is to allow contractors lay utilities infrastructure from the Mataura Valley Milk plant, at McNab just north east of Gore, into the town. 

Flush Water Before Drinking

The Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking water tap each morning, before use, to remove any traces of metals from the plumbing fittings that may have dissolved. This simple precaution is recommended for all households in the District, whether on public or private water supplies, as trace metals in water can pose a small risk to your health.
