Planning Committee recommends plan changes

Christchurch City Council Planning Committee yesterday recommended that the Council adopt a proposed plan change to amend the airport noise contours in the City Plan.

The plan change seeks to amend the airport noise contours in the City Plan to be consistent with the revised lines shown in the Proposed Plan Change(PC1) to the Canterbury Regional Policy Statement (RPS), which have already been adopted in the district plans of neighbouring Waimakariri and Selwyn districts.

Chairperson of the Planning Committee, Sue Wells says “The new 50-55dBA Ldn noise contours are now anchored at the northern and southern ends of the flight paths, so it makes sense that the City Plan is consistent with the noise contours of adjacent territorial authorities. By providing consistency we will avoid confusion, particularly for landowners in the north west area.”

If the Council adopts the Committee’s recommendation, the proposed Plan Change 74 to the City Plan will be publicly notified.

The Committee also recommended that:
• Council accept the Tait Limited Private Plan Change 73, which seeks to rezone the rural land of 245 Wooldridge Road and 6-62 Stanleys Road, Harewood to business zoning and proceed to publicly notify it.
• Council resolve to impose a temporary Alcohol Ban Area for Sumner from 7.00pm 31 December 2012 to 7.00am 1 January 2013.

Gordon Campbell: On DHB Deficits And Free Trade

Currently the world is looking on aghast at the Trump administration’s plans to slash Obamacare, mainly in order to finance massive tax changes that will deliver most of their gains to the wealthy. Lives will be lost in the trade-off. Millions of Americans stand to lose access to the healthcare they need.

Spot the difference with New Zealand, where DHBs are under intense pressure to reduce deficits within a climate of chronic underfunding. More>>
