If I have feedback on the plan, how can I share it?

You can provide your feedback here. 

The For Our Future pages provide a year-round forum so you can let us know what your priorities are for Otago's environment and/or public transport.

Why didn’t ORC follow a formal consultation process for this year’s Annual Plan?

A formal consultation was not required this year because there were no significant or material changes to the Long-term Plan.
