Community Board Resolved FWCB/2016/00033

Rutland Street Parking Options

 

The Board voiced its strong opposition to the proposed alternative plan, which requires wholescale removal of trees and which appears to have arisen through comments from the Shirley/Papanui Community Board who do not have delegation for the western side of Rutland Street.  

 

Any proposal for such wide spread tree removal would require a new full consultation process given the significant change to the proposal originally consulted on.

 

It was felt the original plan that was supported by the Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board struck a good balance between the retention of trees, retention of adequate parking and helped to achieve a cohesive functional major cycleway network for Christchurch.

 

The Board wished to register its concern that such fundamental changes to the original plan had not been made known or presented to the Board at a much earlier stage.

 

The Board requested that the Board Chair relay these comments to the Infrastructure Transport and Environment Committee on Thursday 5 May 2016.

 

Member Gough/Member Buck                                                                                                                            Carried

The Board considered a report requesting funding from its 2015/16 Youth Development Fund from Callum Bishop, Jessica Arthur and Abigail Field.

 

 

Staff Recommendations

1.         Makes a grant of $500 from its 2015/16 Youth Development Fund to Callum Bishop towards competing in the International Softball Junior Men's Championship in Michigan, USA in July 2016.
