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.”

Christchurch Fires: Friday Morning Update

Slightly cooler weather conditions and higher humidity with some light rain having fallen early this morning is welcome relief for emergency services fighting the Port Hills fire in Christchurch..

It has been a quiet night with a few minor flare ups contained by fire crews. Thermal imaging is being used to identify hot spots. There is a lot of work to do to clean up the whole fire area and this will go on for several days.

Te Hapua Welfare Centre remains open with a small amount of people staying there. Nga Hau E Wha Marae and the Selwyn welfare centre have been closed. Police cordons are still in place and these areas are still considered dangerous. The situation is being constantly reassessed and we will provide further information as soon as it is available.
