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.”

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Hi and welcome to the 47th edition of Werewolf, published on the eve of Anzac Day. Its become a cliché to describe Gallipolli as the crucible of this country’s identity, yet hold on... Isn’t our national identity supposed to be bi-cultural... and wouldn’t that suggest that the New Zealand Wars of the 19th century is a more important crucible of national identity than those fought on foreign soil?

Yet as Alison McCulloch eloquently reveals in this month’s cover story, New Zealand devotes a mere fraction of its attention span and funding resources to commemorating the New Zealand Wars compared to what it devotes to the two world wars, Vietnam and Afghanistan... More>>
