The group is well on the way towards the creation of this plan for the area.

A 'slogan' was creatively arrived at 'Little River - Big Ideas' which will be used for the length of the project and may continue afterwards, possibly in conjunction with the Little River Wairewa Community Trust.

6.9      Pigeon Bay Church

A meeting was held Sunday 17 April for the community to discuss the potential transfer of the church into community management or ownership.

A small committee has been formed to forward these issues in the form of a proposed Management Plan which could be assessed by the Anglican Church and the possibility of forming a Trust.

There is already a Reserve Management Committee in the bay as well as a committee for the Pigeon Bay Hall.

6.10    Little River Speed Limit Review

New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) staff have indicated they have worked through the process and based on the current and new draft method for setting speed limits, the best they can do is 60km.-

They have asked for an indication about how the community might respond to that reduced speed limit. Forms have been developed to update the community and seek initial response to this 60km limit.  The forms have been placed in the Little River Service Centre and used at the Little River-Big Ideas Drop in session on 30 April.

This is an extra step additional to the formal consultation process that will follow a proposed recommended new limit.

An update on the feedback received to date will be verbally given at the Board meeting.
