Their vision for the future is to continue to strengthen connecting the community in greater New Brighton.

The Chairperson thanked the I Love New Brighton planning team for all their efforts and their presentation to the Board.

Student Parking - Ōrua Paeroa Campus: Shirley Boys' and Avonside Girls' High Schools

The Transport Network Planner and Traffic Engineer, Christchurch City Council spoke to the Board on student parking around the Shirley Boys' and Avonside Girls' High Schools area.  Staff tabled a map of the area which summarised the parking demand and issues in surrounding streets (Attached).  Statistics showed increased use of the cycle lanes in the surrounding area and less student parking/ vehicles than anticipated.

Staff are working with the two schools on Transport Management Plans.  There are no known issues with parking at Taiora: QEII however this continues to be monitored.

Initial assessment is that some time-restriction and no-stopping areas may be required.

Staff undertook to provide regular updates to the Board on the matter.

The Chairperson thanked staff for their presentation.
