Time running out to comment on essential services

There is just one week left until submissions close on Christchurch City Council's Draft Assessment of Water and Sanitary services.

The draft assessment, a summary of the assessment and public submission forms are available from Christchurch City Council service centres, Civic Offices, Christchurch City Libraries and on the website www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay.

An assessment of services including cemeteries and crematoria; public conveniences; storm water drainage; waste water and water supply is required of all Local Territorial Authorities under the Local Government Act 2002. The focus of this assessment must be on ensuring that public health is protected and that future demand for water and sanitary services can be met.

While much of the draft assessment recommends continuation of the status quo, some issues have arisen that will require further investigation and public consultation including the Council's provision of public toilets in shopping blocks, according to Christchurch City Council City Water & Waste unit manager, Mark Christison

Submissions on the assessment may be made via the above website or sent to Water and Sanitary Services Consultation, Communication Team, Christchurch City Council, PO Box 237, Christchurch. Members of the public may also request to have their submission heard in person by a Council committee. Hearings are likely to be held between 31 May and 3 June 2005 and will be open to the public.

All submissions must be received by Christchurch City Council by 5pm, Monday 30 May 2005.
