Community Board Resolved FWCB/2016/00048

Part B

The Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board noted the concerns raised in the deputation regarding the recent Hearing Process, the Community Consultation, the apparent lack of clarity over the nature of the Hearing and the ability of the public to effect change or to influence both the current Reserve Management Plan proposals and the apparent zoning differences and, in turn, the long term potential implications for the loss of greenspace in Jellie Park. The Board decided to:

1.              Request an urgent informal meeting with relevant senior officers including consultation lead, reserve management lead and Parks and Recreation lead to fully understand all the context and process to date.
