Comments on Sumner’s Draft Village Centre Master Plan


Comments on Sumner’s Draft Village Centre Master Plan needed by 12 December 2012 needed by 12 December 2012

Residents, property owners and business people have only ten days left to comment on the Draft Sumner Village Centre Master Plan for the rebuild and recovery of their village centre.

The final date for public submissions is 5pm on Wednesday, 12 December 2012.

Joint Advisory Group (JAG*) Chairman David Cox says over 100 people were welcomed to the drop-in sessions to discuss the Plan’s content with Council staff and members of the JAG.

“The positive feedback we received at the drop-in sessions was very encouraging. People are really getting involved in the future of the area and are keen for their comments on the Plan to be heard.”

Mayor Bob Parker says it is vital that people make the time to have their say on the Plan, as their comments will help the Council to understand their views.

“There has been a steady stream of submissions on the Plan coming in and we expect this to build as the closing date for comments approaches. People are letting us know what they think – this information will ensure good outcomes that will work for the community; and help build investor and community confidence in the area.”

Plain Packs Plan: Gordon Campbell On Tobacco Politicking (And The TPP Death Watch)

Has Act leader David Seymour got the easiest job in the world, or what? Roll out of bed, turn on the radio and hmm…there do seem to be a lot of problems out there in the world.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Shortly after the embargo lifted at 2pm news organisations started filing reports claiming that health, and to a lesser extent housing and education, were the ‘big winners’ out of the Budget.

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems. Indeed the Budget hints that these problems may get worse. More>>
