8.    Burwood/Pegasus Community Board Area Report


8.1      Funding Update

            The Board Funding Update for 2015/16 was attached to the agenda.  Staff advised of a correction to the funding chart. The total amount of funding available, prior to decisions made at the current meeting, was $23,031, not $25,999. 

8.2      Report on Customer Service Requests

            A summary of Customer Service Requests (CSRs) for April 2016 including breakdowns of CSRs for Street Cleaning, Street Maintenance, Parks Maintenance and Graffiti was attached to the agenda.  The Board discussed the high number of roadside litter complaints and requested staff to provide a breakdown, comment and a map showing the litter “hotspots”. 

8.3      Dead Trees – South Brighton

            The Board discussed the staff intent to get an ornithologist to check for any important ecological values associated with the trees.  The arborists will identify the dead trees to be removed and the trees at risk of falling so the scope of work can be determined.  Depending on contractor availability, the aim is to programme this work over the next 3-6 months. 

            The Board noted their immediate concern is for the removal of obviously dead trees in the South Brighton Domain including the estuary edge (Bridge Street to Southshore Spit). 


Community Board Resolved BPCB/2016/00074

Part B

That the Burwood/Pegasus Community Board:

1.        Receives the report.

2.        Requests the removal of the dead/unhealthy/unsafe trees from the South Brighton Domain area including a special focus on those along the estuary edge from Bridge Street to Caspian Street.  The Board requests this be dealt with urgently.

Chairperson Cummings/Member East                                                                                      Carried



8.4      Urban Transition Project

            The Board considered information it had received on the final costs of the transitional amenities in New Brighton.  Staff have set aside money for the site works, transportation costs, trenching, power connection fee, consenting, etc. to enable the installation of the BBQ unit designed and supplied by Strategic Urban Rejuvenation Force (S.U.R.F.) and for the installation of the proposed picnic tables.  The Board decided that it would like the balance of the budget to go towards modern picnic tables and two seagull proof rubbish bins.  Any subsequent balance to then go toward beach volleyball.
