             The Prayer of the 570 signatory petition reads:

             “We are totally opposed to the establishment of a Skate Park in Halswell Domain in the position that has been proposed. We feel that it has the potential to devalue properties in the locality, could introduce an element of “anti-social behaviour” and will destroy the peaceful aspect of living close to the tranquil domain that we all enjoy.”

The Riccarton/Wigram Community Board decided to:

1.         Receive the petition from the Halswell Domain Action Group and to refer the petition to staff for consideration and response.
