Public Meeting On Draft Public Street Enclosures

1 May, 2002

Public Meeting On Draft Public Street Enclosures Policy

A public meeting is being held at 4pm on Monday 6 May, 2002, at ‘Our City’, the former Municipal Council Building, corner Worcester Boulevard/Oxford Terrace (the nearest parking building is Rydges Hotel) to discuss the draft Public Street Enclosures Policy.

The Christchurch City Council has developed this draft policy for licensing parts of the public street space for outdoor dining.

The policy will guide Council decision-making on the location and extent of areas licensed for outdoor dining throughout the city, and the type of furniture, planters, windbreaks, canopies and other enclosing structures that will be permitted.

This is an opportunity for an explanation, clarification and questions relating to the review and draft policy. It is intended to assist those who may wish to make a formal submission. Submitters will have the chance to speak to their submissions at a meeting of the Sustainable Transport and Utilities sub-committee considering this matter on Monday 27 May 2002.

Copies of the draft policy (Public Street Enclosures Policy) and the accompanying review document (Public Street Enclosures: - Review) can be obtained from Joanne McKay, Christchurch City Council, P.O. Box 237, Christchurch 1, phone 371 1953, or from the City Council’s website at:
