A positive meeting was held today at the Clutha District Council to discuss the future of Telford.

In attendance at the meeting were Clutha District Mayor Bryan Cadogan, MP’s Mark Patterson and Hamish Walker, members of the Telford Farm Board, representatives from SIT, Tertiary Education Commission, NZQA and Tertiary Education Union representatives.

SIT Chairperson Peter Heenan said he was encouraged by the support from all parties at the meeting for SIT to pull together a proposal for the ministers consideration.

He said he hoped the proposal would be with the minister and cabinet by the end of January for their decision.

Telford Farm Board Chairperson Richard Farquhar said it was really important that Telford be given the support from Government to ensure it had every chance of success with SIT.

Mayor Cadogan said there was cohesive determination from all parties around the table to find a viable, sustainable option for the Telford Campus.

He was appreciative of the positive discussion with the liquidator during the meeting and having the ministers officials present.

“Our thoughts are with staff at this difficult time and we appreciate your commitment and loyalty to Telford and its students. There is a local determination for Telford to continue its long history of servicing agricultural students and the industry.”
