Community Committee talks heritage

The Christchurch City Council’s Community Committee met today and considered a number of items including:

Heritage Incentive Grant – Cranmer Bridge Club 25 Armagh Street
The Committee recommended that the Council approve a Heritage Incentive Grant of up to $104,119 for conservation and maintenance on the protected heritage building at 25 Armagh Street, site of the Cranmer Bridge Club since the 1960s. The grant would be subject to a 20-year limited conservation covenant.

Central City Landmark Heritage Grant – Victoria Mansions Building 91 Victoria Street
The Committee recommended that the Council approve a grant of up to $900,000 to repair and upgrade the Victoria Mansions Building, subject to a Full Conservation Covenant between the owners and the Council. The Central City Landmark Heritage Grant had a budget of $1.755 million in the 2014/15 Annual Plan.

Central City Landmark Heritage Grant – St Michael’s School Stone Classroom Block 243 Durham Street
The Committee decided to let this proposed grant of $755,000 lie on the table until its meeting in September 2014, pending discussions with the owners, Church Property Trustees, about their overall approach to heritage buildings.

Exchange Christchurch Trust grant
The Committee recommended that the Council approve a Creative Industries Support Fund grant of $96,500 to the Exchange Christchurch Trust to set up a facility for creative industries. The Council launched the Fund in 2012/13 to help keep the city’s creative talent during the recovery and rebuild of the Central City.

Redcliffs Community Pavilion at Redcliffs Park
The Committee has asked staff to work with the Redcliffs Residents Association and the Hagley–Ferrymead Community Board on future community-led options for recommissioning the Redcliffs Community Pavilion.

The Council’s 10-year investment in Golf Events
The Committee has asked for more detail on the methodology behind the economic impact reports of the Council’s $5.382 million investment in golf events since 2005. According to Australian consultancy IER Pty Ltd, the investment has led to a $70 million direct beneficial effect for Christchurch over the 10 years.

Amenities Block at the Denton Oval
Located under the main grandstand at Denton Park, the well-used Amenities Block reopened in July, allowing local sports groups to use it for a good portion of the winter sports season. The strengthening work has taken it to 67 per cent of the New Building Standard.

Hei Hei Community Centre
Repairs and strengthening work on the Centre are due to be finished by late 2014. The Hei Hei Community Link, next to the community centre at 12 Wycola Avenue, recently reopened after strengthening work.

Werewolf: John Pilger, And Making War On China

In July, the New Zealand Defence Force is scheduled to join the latest round of Talisman Sabre, a huge training exercise that Australia carries out biennially in conjunction with all four arms of the US military.

Last time around in 2015, New Zealand contributed 650 personnel, 45 vehicles and two of our $NZ771 million dollar fleet of NH90 helicopters to this regional war game.

What’s weird is that Talisman Sabre is actually a rehearsal for an assault on China and its ability to defend itself. More>>
