Submissions - Hamilton City's Western Green Belt

The time has come to make a submission on the City Councils Western Green Belt Plan. While there is a reduction of proposals that affect the Club directly they still have potential to affect the Club both financially and operationally

So please take a little time to make a submission on the plan

The key points that concern the Club are on the white board in the playing room at the Club - take some time to read them before you submit

If you wish to re-read the Councils proposed plan follow this link

Thanks
