Key decisions from today’s Environment and Infrastructure Committee meeting
Christchurch City Council Environment and Infrastructure met today, with the key decisions made outlined below:
Urban design plan seeks
‘Airspace’ to revitalise Central City
The Committee recommended the Council grant approval for the proposed leasing and occupation of Council-owned airspace by Hereford Holdings Limited, at Cashel Mall and Oxford Terrace. The space will be used to create enhanced gathering areas and will help attract people back into the Central City.
Community Boards to assist in identifying
The Committee recommended that the incoming Council develop a process with the Community Boards to identify existing and new projects that should be considered for fast-tracking in conjunction with SCIRT works when they are due to be delivered
Council asked to
sell land to facilitate business development
The Committee recommended that the Council sell a 20-metre strip of land at Springs Road to adjoining land owners which will allow them access to Margaret Eggers Drive.
Heathcoate Valley noise complaint
The Committee referred a complaint about noise in Heathcoate Valley back to the Hagley Ferrymead Community Board for their further consideration. There have been reports of a low frequency hum by people in the area.
Helmores Lane Bridge repairs
The Committee recommended to the Council that it initiates consultation with the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board and local community on repair work to Helmores Lane Bridge. The bridge has a Group 3 Heritage listing and prior to its closure due to earthquake damage, was used by about 1000 light vehicles per day.
