Board Confirms Members Of New Brighton Advisory Group

Burwood/Pegasus Community Board has confirmed the members of a Community Advisory Group to aid the completion of a master plan for the recovery of New Brighton.


Community Board Chair Andrea Cummings says there was a good response to the call for expressions of interest to sit on the group.


“We have assessed the applications and are delighted that seven groups representing the New Brighton community will take their place on the Community Advisory Group (CAG). All those selected have demonstrated a commitment to the revitalisation of the seaside suburb and each will contribute to the successful conclusion of the New Brighton Centre Master Plan.”


The Community Advisory Group chair is Andrea Cummings and fellow Burwood/Pegasus Community Board members Tim Sintes and Stan Tawa will sit on the CAG. Other groups represented are:

· New Brighton Project
· New Brighton Pier and Foreshore Promotion Society
· Renew Brighton
· New Brighton Business and Landowners Association
· Eastern Vision
· WOW Brighton
· NZ Police


Rūnanga will be indirectly involved through regular updates provided through Mahaanui Kurataiao Ltd.


“Members have a busy time ahead as they work with staff on small-scale public and private initiatives for the revitalisation of New Brighton’s commercial centre and how they might be funded,” Andrea Cummings says.


The work will help finalise the Draft New Brighton Centre Master Plan, as the Community Advisory Group’s recommendations will inform final changes to the Draft Plan. They will be considered alongside previous feedback from submissions and recent planning work by the New Brighton Business and Landowners Association. All proposed amendments to the Master Plan will be reviewed by the Burwood/Pegasus Community Board and the Council prior to adopting the Master Plan, anticipated to be later this year.


Meanwhile, the Council has allocated $30,000 from its Suburban Centres Transitional Budget for temporary improvements to Brighton Mall. Staff are in discussions with community groups and artists about the nature of the works within and near the pedestrian mall. It is anticipated the work will be completed by the end of June 2014.

Patience: Drive Safe

Be patient before passing is the AA's message for drivers this Labour weekend.

"People taking crazy risks to get past other vehicles is one of the most dangerous things on the road,” says AA spokesperson Dylan Thomsen.

“The weather is looking good for the long weekend so the roads will be busy. Unfortunately, that also increases the chances of people getting frustrated and trying a risky passing manoeuvre. When they get past, there will probably be more traffic up ahead anyway so it won’t get people there faster.” More>>
