Board Comments

The  Board discussed the CPTED report on the Onawe Place Walkway and noted that 60 residents had signed up in support of the retention of the Walkway as an important link through to the bus stop, shops and local school.

The Board understood that residents considered the lack of lighting outside the shopping precinct opposite the access to the Walkway was as much of an issue as the lack in the Walkway itself and should also be addressed as a priority.

 

Staff Recommendations

That the Shirley/Papanui Community Board:

1.         Supports a joint Community Board/community response to make the Onawe Place walkway safer for residents to use and to live near.

2.         Allocates up to $5,000 to enable a one-off upgrade to the walkway, and to support a Neighbourhood Art Project.  The upgrade to include a contribution towards repairing the damaged fencing and a repaint of all fences in a light-reflective colour.

3.         The Neighbourhood Art Project will be led by residents and supported by local organisations.  It will improve the walkway by covering graffiti on the walkway surface with residents' designs, which will signal community ownership.

4.         Supports the report's recommendation for the Council to give priority to maintaining the bus stop near the Hills Road entrance to the walkway to ensure that it is safe and comfortable for users.
