4.   Deputations by Appointment

Part B

4.1       Ōtākaro Limited

             Albert Brantley - Chief Executive, Robert Fiske - General Manager Development, and Annemarie Settle - General Manager Communications and Stakeholder Engagement, representing Ōtākaro Limited updated the Board on Ōtākaro Limited projects within the Community Board Area.

             The Board thanked Mr Brantley, Mr Fiske and Ms Settle for their deputation.

4.2       Fuse Youth Centre – Shoreline Youth Trust

             Gareth Davies, Manager, and Aaron Powley, Programme Co-ordinator, represented the Shoreline Youth Trust and spoke about their programmes and Fuse Youth Centre in Sumner.

             The Board thanked Mr Davies and Mr Powley for their deputation.

4.3       Anti-social behaviour in Doris Lusk Reserve

             The scheduled deputation did not attend.

 4.4      Road Repairs to Main Road, St Andrews

             Bronny Clifford and Julie Gane, residents of Main Road St Andrews, advised that ten years ago they were advised by the Council that their part of the Main Road (numbers 40-48) would be renewed.  A bus stop on the Main Road has been moved to where they had an entrance/exit and now their part of Main Road has become a cul-de-sac situated behind the bus stop.  Residents believe there is a safety issue when trying to exit this newly formed cul-de-sac as some people exceed the speed limit in the area making exiting dangerous.  The street is currently in very poor condition and has many pot holes.  Members of the public and contractors also park haphazardly and this presents safety issues.  Photographs were tabled to show the Board the issues the deputation was highlighting.

             The Board thanked Ms Clifford and Ms Gane for their deputation.

4.5       Linwood Lower Fields Flood Mitigation Basin Landscape Plan

             Elizabeth Evans, a local resident of Woolston, noted her concerns about the Linwood Lower Fields Flood Mitigation Basin Landscape Plan.  She is concerned about tree planting shading her property, security, potential anti-social behaviour, issues caused by dog usage, and the possibility of the holding ponds becoming stagnant during low flows.  She is however supportive of the Urban Forest project.

             The Board thanked Ms Evans for her deputation.

4.6       Linwood Lower Fields Flood Mitigation Basin Landscape Plan

             Maureen Warburton, a local resident of Woolston, noted her support for the Linwood Lower Fields Flood Mitigation Basin Landscape plan but highlighted concerns about the Plan.  She said she shared the same concerns as Elizabeth Evans noted in her deputation.

             The Board thanked Ms Warburton for her deputation.

4.7       Linwood Lower Fields Flood Mitigation Basin Landscape Plan

             Julie Dance, a local resident of Woolston, noted her support for the Linwood Lower Fields Flood Mitigation Basin Landscape Plan but shared concerns about the plan.  She is concerned about security and lighting, new boundary fences, and the use of chemicals and spraying.

             The Board thanked Ms Dance for her deputation.
