Caring for our Local Environment
Who We Are Kuratau Omori Preservation Society (KOPS) is dedicated to ensuring our local environment remains a special place for our children and future generations. We’re a voluntary group of residents and ratepayers passionate about nurturing and enhancing the environment in our beautiful lakeside area. We represent residents, families, and regular visitors to the Kuratau-Omori settlement. We work with the Omori Kuratau Ratepayers Association and the local pest management group (volunteers who maintain traplines in the bush to control predators like rats, stoats, feral cats, hedgehogs and possums). The KOPS Easter Weekend Newsletter - update on the D2 D3 Subdivision. We have been in contact with TDC again, and no further progress on the ecology assessment relating to this application has been made. TDC assures us we will be notified of any updates. KOPS AGM We held the KOPS 15th AGM on Wednesday 5th January at the Kuratau Hall and discussed what action the Society should take. As you are all aware, there is little progress over the last 3 years and it is very frustrating to say the least. The outcome was to continue as we are and possibly take some legal advice on what our options are. Don Mathieson has been our Chairman for the last 4 years and has stood down from this position. His legal background has been of great help and we expressed our thanks to Don. Our new Chairman is Richard Marchant who has been involved with KOPS since its inception, some 15 years ago, so has a lot of historical knowledge. The Committee remains the same. KOPS Subs Each year we set the subs for the forthcoming year and they are to remain at $10 per person. We appreciate that why should you join as no progress has been made. We are endeavouring to retain the bush that the development of 80 sections it will remove. When TDC makes a decision, we will initiate a response. The more members we have strengthens our case. I would encourage you to join by paying the KOPS sub of $10.00 per person into Account 06-0471-0733091-00. Please insert surname and initials of primary contact person as reference to identify your payment. Also, email me with your contact details – name, address ph number etc to thehjs@xtra.co.nz.
