Part B

4.1       Banks Peninsula Walking Festival 2017

             Hollie Hollander (Akaroa District Promotions) and Suky Thompson (Banks Peninsula Rod Donald Trust) spoke on behalf of the Banks Peninsula Walking Festival 2017.

             The festival organisers were seeking support from the Community Board for a funding application they will be submitting to the Council. They were also seeking the support of the Community Board for the event.

             The Board was supportive of the Walking Festival and commended the organisers for all the work they put into the event.

             The Board thanked Ms Hollander and Ms Thompson for their deputation.

 

4.2       Lake Forsyth Endowment Fund

             Ken Sitarz spoke to the Board about Council use of the Lake Forsyth Endowment Fund.  Mr Sitarz provided background on the legislation relating to the Endowment Fund and other information relating to a cost sharing agreement the Council has with the Wairewa Runanga for the access bridge at the lake, which he reported was being partially funded through the endowment revenue.

             Mr Sitarz questioned why Little River residents were having to pay for drainage works, through an Environment Canterbury rate, when there was apparently long standing legislation for the provision of funding for these works.

             Mr Sitarz asked the Board to recommend to the Council that funds from the endowment reserves be released for drainage works around Little River and for the Council to prohibit the sale of Endowment Reserves 3185 and 3586.  He also requested that the Regional Council repeal the Little River Drainage fixed charge and refund ratepayers the monies paid.
