Attached are the Dunedin Tunnel Trails Trust ("Caversham Tunnels" group) Submissions to DCC LTCCP and RLTP. Gerard Hyland sent these.  Said I would post them to Spokes D website. It looks like Spokes Dunedin, Living Streets Dunedin, Dunedin Tunnel Trails Trust, and Harbour Cycle Network are all speaking on Tuesday 19 May starting 1.10pm at ORC so great opportunity for all interested cyclists and walkers to attend who can.

Attached are the recent Spokes Dunedin Submissions on: draft DCC Long Term Council Community Plan (LTCCP), draft ORC LTCCP, & draft Otago Regional Land Transport Programme (RLTP). Just so these are kept somewhere in case anyone needs to refer to them. Wondered about Phaedra sending a copy of the ORC LTCCP and ORLTP to ORC.
