10. Elected Members’ Information Exchange

Part B

Members exchanged information of relevant interest as follows:

10.1    The Board expressed its concern that the Parks Update in the Coastal-Burwood Community Board Area Update omitted comment on Donnell Park which has been reported to be in a state of disrepair. It was agreed that staff would follow up these concerns.

             b.         to consider options for the use of the balance of the school site.   


10.3    The Board agreed to write to the Ministry of Education to request a meeting to discuss the demolition plans for Aranui School. This was for the purpose of requesting that not all buildings be demolished so as to allow community groups to occupy buildings, noting there is an urgent need for community meeting spaces in the area due to the earthquakes.
