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.

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