10. Elected Members’ Information Exchange

Part B

Board members exchanged information on matters of current interest including:

·      A local church has expressed an interest in using the Aranui Primary School site

·      South Brighton Residents Association met recently. The Association’s current concerns include the boat ramp at Hardy Street and stop banks alongside South Brighton

·      Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ High School Zone submission – currently out for public feedback.  The Board will develop feedback

·      The proposed opening function for Burwood Park outdoor gym is midday on 4 May

·      The Board is concerned at the ongoing flooding at the Anzac Drive/Pages Road intersection

·      Matters referred to a subsequent meeting for further discussion were:

·      ANZAC Bridge Fronds in relation to bridge repair

    On 11 April 2018,  Kim Money (Chairperson) and Tim Sintes (Deputy Chairperson) spoke on behalf of the Coastal-Burwood Community Board regarding item 11 of the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee Agenda - Southshore South New Brighton Temporary Floodplain Management Update.


      Given the staff preferred option in the report was Option 1, the deputation feedback was in relation to Option 1 (Option 1 is to reprioritise the works from Seafield Place to the Jetty (preferred option).  This option retains the extension of the Avon stopbanks in the immediate vicinity of Bridge Street.  The re-prioritised works would be progressed if the Southshore and South New Brighton Regeneration Strategy for the area identified them as a preferred option).


      At this meeting, the Board further discussed the report and the majority of the Board agreed upon the following feedback in relation to all options:


     Understand the reprioritisation of the northern bund within the Land Drainage Recovery Programme but concerned that the budget could be lost

     Ask that the budget is retained for the bund to be completed at a later date

     Ask that the funding that has been deferred for the bund be used for permanent edge repairs in the South Brighton Domain (adjacent to the camping ground and yacht club)

     Residents around Seafield Place, Cradock Street and the School may continue to feel vulnerable

     Request Council staff speak directly to these residents/ the School to inform them of the change of plans

     Desire to resolve flood protection between and Bridge Street and the jetty – asked that all options are considered, including but not limited to a regeneration strategy


      At the deputation there was a question asking if the Board’s preference would be Option 2 of the report (Option 2 is to continue with the original proposal. Progress with works as per Council resolution of 10 October 2017 and construct bunding South of Bridge St extending to the jetty).


      At this meeting, the Board discussed this and the majority of the Board agreed that their feedback to this question was that Option 2 of the report would be the Board’s preferred option.  The Board also noted that all previous discussions on flooding in the area was based in a one in a hundred year event, whereas this report was based on a one in fifty year event.





Meeting concluded at 7.12pm
