            -        Landscaping of The Gaiety grounds, following trees being cut down

Ms Andrews was advised that staff have been asked to update the Board on the missing chain around the Britomart Reserve and the damage to the Bruce bridge.  The Board asked that Ms Andrews be forwarded a copy of the report on monitoring of leachate at Takapuneke.

Ms Andrews was thanked for her deputation.

 

4.2      Kathleen Reid, Jeremy Buchanan and Debs O’Keefe

            Kathleen Reid, Akaroa resident, and on behalf of Norma Horne, Cooptown resident, who was unable to attend, addressed the Board on the elimination of plastic bags on Banks Peninsula or as a first step, in Akaroa.  She said she wished to support the petition from Megan Blakie recently presented to the Council, which was referred to the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee.  She asked the Board for its support to help advance the eventual banning of plastic bags.  Mrs Reid also asked to be kept informed of any developments regarding this topic

Board Comment

The Board advised that although it supported this initiative in principle, it was not aware of what the Council’s role is on this issue.  

The Board thanked Mrs Reid for her deputation and suggested that she attend a meeting of the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee as a deputation to raise her concerns.  The Board also suggested that Mrs Reid contact Project Lyttelton which is involved in a similar initiative and may be able to assist with a way forward to accomplish the elimination of plastic bags.

10. Little River and  Akaroa- Proposed Electric Vehicle Charger Parking Restrictions

 

Board Comment

1.        Staff reported to the Board that due to consultation feedback, additional information had come to hand since the issuing of the agenda.  This had resulted in a possible change to the proposed location of the two electric vehicle charging parking restriction locations being positioned in Rue Brittan, Akaroa.

2.        In replying to questions, staff informed the Board that the Parking Unit would carry out enforcement of the sites, that battery charging would be free to users (the power used being paid by Orion) and that vehicle owners would need to supply their own cables, but did not have to stay with the vehicle during charging.

3.        The Board was concerned that the proposed signage, identifying the sites, may not be clear enough to ensure that these areas were for electric vehicles only, and could possibly be mistakenly used by other motor vehicles users.
