Comments on Draft New Brighton Centre Master Plan needed by 18 February 2012

Residents and businesses have two weeks left to tell the Christchurch City Council their views on the vision, goals and actions proposed in the Draft New Brighton Centre Master Plan. The Plan has been prepared to support the recovery and rebuild of New Brighton's commercial centre in response to the damage caused by the earthquakes.

The final date for public submissions is 5pm on Monday 18 February 2013.

The Plan is available to view in any of the Council's open service centres and libraries. It is also available online at www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay

City Planning Unit Manager Brigitte de Ronde says the feedback received on the Plan at the recent drop-in session was very encouraging - people are excited about the future of their centre.
"We have had positive feedback on the idea of reinforcing the river-to-sea link through the centre and high on the list of 'must-haves' are the proposed new public toilets and the bus interchange.
"There has been a steady stream of submissions on the Plan coming in - we have already received over 100 - and expect this to build as the closing date for comments approaches.

"People may also want to reflect on the separate, independent proposal to develop a water park in New Brighton. Reference to the water park can be included in formal submissions to the Draft New Brighton Centre Master Plan. However, I would encourage people to make sure they have their say on specific actions in the Draft Master Plan. These submissions will help the Council to understand your views, which will result in a robust, workable Plan that has a high level of community buy-in," she says.

Gordon Campbell: A Govt. Christmas Bad News Dump -The Skycity Convention Center Blowout & A Negative MBIE Review

If the government really did have good tidings of great joy you can bet it wouldn’t be strewing them about at Christmas time – which is, traditionally, the dumping ground for terrible news that the government fervently hopes the public will be too distracted to notice. And so verily this Christmas Eve we learn of (a) the explosion of costs to the taxpayer and ratepayer of the vile SkyCity convention centre in Auckland and that (b) the government’s flagship MBIE “super-ministry” run by its Minister of Everything is a disaster zone of incompetence and mismanagement. MBIE is a Titanic looking for an iceberg, or so it would seem. More>>
