Time running out to comment on Heathcote vision

Time running out to comment on Heathcote River vision

There are just nine days left for Christchurch residents to give their views on a vision, being prepared by the Christchurch City Council, for a 6km stretch of the Heathcote River. Submissions close on Friday 22 April.

The vision document that will be produced by the Council will focus on the river and its surroundings from Colombo St to Hansen Park. Once this has been done the Council will be able to develop a long term plan for the area including landscaping, tree planting, beautifying the closed section of Hunter Tce and changes that need to be made to meet future demands. Some of this work including tree planting will start next year.

“We have had some good feedback so far on the vision with a total of about 200 people turning out to a series of public meetings in the area. Electronic and written submissions are still coming in,” Council project manager John de Zwart said.

To make an online submission visit the website www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay Further information about the Heathcote River vision project and submission forms are also available from Council Service Centres, Civic Offices and Christchurch City Libraries.
