Council meeting continues tomorrow

Christchurch City Council met today to consider a full agenda and will resume tomorrow at 10am

Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker says the Council wanted to make a number of key decisions before the Christmas break.

"We also spent some hours today hearing from the community on key issues before decisions were made. This is an important step in the process as we want to make sure residents and interest groups have the opportunity to tell us what they think about the issues and inform our decision-making."

The meeting closed at 5pm today and will resume at 10am tomorrow (Friday 7 December).

Key decisions made today are outlined below; further information will be available after decisions are made on agenda items considered tomorrow.

Hagley Oval

Canterbury Cricket's resource consent application to redevelop Hagley Oval has been referred directly to the Environment Court by the Christchurch City Council. If the resource consent is granted, the matter will come back to the Council to consider whether to grant a lease to Canterbury Cricket.

Draft New Brighton Centre Master Plan

The Council approved the Draft New Brighton Centre Master Plan to be released for public comment. The Council-led Plan has been prepared to support the recovery and rebuild of New Brighton's centre in response to the damage caused by the earthquakes.

The Plan will be available from Monday 17 December 2012 to view in any of the Council's open service centres and libraries. The final date for written comments is 5pm on Monday 18 February 2013.

The unkind might talk of sinking ships, others could be more reminded of a loaded revolver left on the desk by his Cabinet colleagues as they closed the door behind them, now that the polls in Ohariu had confirmed he was no longer of much use to National. More>>
