7.     Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park Renewal/Landscape Plan

Reference:

19/560664

Presenter(s):

Lizzy Farthing – Recreation and Sports Planner and Tara King – Recreation Planner Parks

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium car park renewal/landscape plan and tree removals (refer attachments A and B).

2.   Executive Summary

2.1      Cowles Stadium is located at 170 Pages Road, Aranui on Cuthberts Green. The stadium is a purpose-built standalone indoor stadium with courts and meeting rooms for hire. 

2.2      Cuthberts Green is a large sports park which also includes public toilets and a small playground.

2.3      The Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium car park is due for renewal and funding has been allocated to complete this as part of the Long Term Plan (LTP).

2.4      The key user groups have had an opportunity to view and comment on the plan and are supportive of what is being proposed.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.        Approve the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium car park renewal/landscape plan as per Attachment A

2.        Approve the removal of the trees in the area of  the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium car park  as per Attachment B.

 

4.   Context/Background

Issue or Opportunity

4.1      The Parks Unit work on a 35 year renewal programme for asphalt/chip seal car parks to ensure safety to users and to maintain an acceptable level of service.  The car park at Cuthberts Green is nearing the end of its life span and funding has been allocated in the 2018-28 Long Term Plan for its renewal.

4.2      The Community Board (s) are not required to pass resolutions to approve the renewal of existing park assets.  However, as staff are not recommending approval of a ‘like for like’ option for the car park renewal staff are seeking approval on this occasion.

4.3      This project is a joint project between the Parks Unit and the Recreation and Sports Unit.

4.4      The car park renewal has provided an opportunity to improve the area further by planting 44 more trees, including rain gardens, improving vehicular movement and providing pathways into the stadium and other sporting venues on the park for pedestrians and cyclists along with cycle stands.  The upgrade of the storm water management to on site treatment through rain gardens is for stormwater quality enhancement.

4.5      The car park landscape plan will also require the removal of eight small trees and shrubs located on the southern and eastern sides of the Cowles Stadium building.  Please refer to  Attachment B for the full tree report.

4.6      There is also one tree within the existing car park area that is dead, approval to have this removed will be sought separately under the existing Council Head of Parks delegation.

4.7      New tree planting has been included in the landscape plan for the car park and includes the replanting of approximately 44 new trees.  The new tree species to be included are Carpinius Betulus (Hornbeam) and Podocarpus (Totara).  Examples of these species are below.

 

4.8      There have been reported issues of vehicles parking on grassed areas near the existing car park, which is a safety concern for pedestrians who are attempting to safely move around the area.  The car park renewal/landscape plan will increase the number of car parks from 244 to 281, an increase of 37 additional parks and it is hoped the increase of car park spaces will mean that cars will no longer need to park on the grassed areas.

4.9      Car parking will be monitored once the new car park is in place that if parking is still continuing to take place on the grass this can be addressed separately to this project.

Strategic Alignment

4.10    The renewal of the car park/landscape plan contributes to achieving the community outcome of safe and healthy communities by encouraging people to participate in active recreation.

4.11    This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

4.11.1 Activity: Parks & Foreshore

·      Level of Service: 6.0.3.0 Overall customer satisfaction with the presentation of the City’s Parks - Community Parks presentation: resident satisfaction =70 %

Decision Making Authority

4.12    As per the Christchurch City Council’s Delegation Register, 18 December 2018, the Community Board has the delegation;

4.13    5.16 Landscape Plans – Power to approve the location of, and construction of, or alteration or addition to, any structure or area, and the design of landscape plans for the same, on reserves, parks and roads, provide the design is within the policy and budget set by the Council.

4.14    5.15 Trees on reserves, parks and roads – determine to plant, maintain and remove trees on reserves, parks and roads under the control of the Council within the policy set by the Council.

Previous Decisions

4.15    None.

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

4.16    The decision in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

4.17    The level of significance was determined by using the engagement and significance matrix.  Staff have considered the significance of the decision to be made by the Community Board.  Their assessment is that the matter is of low significance for the following reasons:

4.18    The work in the park affects a small group of park users.

4.19    Works to improve the car park would be beneficial and not detrimental to the local community and user groups.

4.20    There are environmental and social benefits from renewing the car park and improving the amenity value of the park, which will then encourage more use of the area.

 

5.   Options Analysis

Options Considered

5.1      The following reasonably practicable options were considered and are assessed in this report:

·   Renewal of the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park/landscape plan with the addition of pathways, plantings and cycle stands.

·   Renewal of the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park as ‘like for like’ replicating what currently exists.

5.2      The following options were considered but ruled out:

·   Do nothing – due to the car park nearing the end of its lifespan this option was ruled out due to public health and safety.  The Council Parks Unit have an asset condition model that considers asset life span and condition to project a renewal year of the car park.  This car park is due to be renewed in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 financial years.

Options Descriptions

5.3      Option 1 - Preferred Option: Renewal of the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park/landscape plan, as per attachment A.

5.3.1   Option Description: To renew the existing Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park with the addition of pathways, plantings and cycle stands.

5.3.2   Option Advantages

·      The renewal of the car park provides an opportunity to improve the vehicular movements within the car park.

·      This option includes more planting to break up the hard surfaces within Cuthberts Green.

·      Rain gardens have been included to assist with the drainage issues in the car park.

·      The inclusion of a pathway and cycle parking provides cycle and pedestrian access into Cowles Stadium to encourage other modes of transportation.

·      The renewal of the car park is not taking up a wider hard surface footprint on the park, so there is no loss of greenspace. 

·      Through better use of the available hard surface space, car park numbers have been increased.  Providing 37 additional car park spaces for users.  This will have a significant impact during the high demand periods for the five sporting codes that are based on the park.

·      Currently the car park provides for 4 disability parks.  The new plan now includes 8 disability parks, 2 staff car parks and designated coach parking.

·      The key user groups using Cowles Stadium (Canterbury Softball Association, Coastal, Celebration Church, Basketball and Badminton Canterbury) are supportive of the proposed plan.

·      The landscape plan includes the planting of approximately 44 new trees.

·      There is budget to deliver this option.

·      It provides a renewed car park for the park and stadium users for another 35 years.

·      There is a reduction in annual maintenance costs for this site with the new design for the car park, so a saving of $75.74 annually.

5.3.3   Option Disadvantages

·      Disruption to the car park during the construction period.

·      The removal of 9 small trees.

5.4      Option 2 – Renewal of the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park as ‘like for like’

5.4.1   Option Description – Renewal of the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park as ‘like for like’ replicating what currently exists.

5.4.2   Option Advantages

·      There is budget to deliver this option.

·      It provides a renewed car park for the park and stadium users for another 35 years.

5.4.3   Option Disadvantages

·      This option would be a missed opportunity to improve the look and functionality of the car park.

·      There would be no cycle stands and pathways for cycle and pedestrian access.

·      Disruption to the car park during the construction period.

·      There would be no underground wire connections for the future installation of EV charging parks.

Analysis Criteria

5.5      The options were analysed on feedback from the most affected users of Cowles Stadium and cost.

6.   Community Views and Preferences

6.1      The car park is an existing asset on Cuthberts Green with minimal opportunity for wider community input.

6.2      Staff have met with the key user groups using Cowles Stadium (Canterbury Softball Association, Coastal, Celebration Church, Basketball and Badminton Canterbury) and they are supportive of the proposed plan.

6.3      Providing safe access from the car park to the various venues on the park was of importance to the user groups.

6.4      These groups did request that post and chain access was retained as part of the plan, and the plan was amended to reflect this.

7.   Legal Implications

7.1      There not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision

7.2      This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit

8.   Risks

8.1      There is a low risk of increase in costs for the car park and landscape plan caused through the time delay from estimates at the start of the concept design phase until gaining concept plan approval and placing orders.  The treatment of this risk is to confirm estimates and obtain a final quote as soon as the plan has been approved by the Community Board.

9.   Next Steps

9.1      Following approval of the Cuthberts Green and Cowles Stadium Car Park Renewal/Landscape Plan by the Community Board, detailed design and tendering of the project will begin.  Construction is expected to begin in quarter four of 2019 and if possible will be completed by December 2019.

9.2      Construction timeframes will be shared with key stakeholders early to minimise disruption.

8.     Radley Park - Dog Agility Equipment Renewal

Reference:

19/548958

Presenter(s):

Tara King, Recreation Planner Parks

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the renewal of the dog agility equipment as part of the Radley Park Landscape Plan (refer Attachment A).

2.   Executive Summary

2.1      This report is being provided to fulfil Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board’s resolution (LCHB/2018/150) from 17 October 2018.

Approve the Radley Park Landscape Plan as per Attachment A of the staff report attached to the agenda except for the renewal of the dog agility equipment and request staff to investigate the possibility of fencing of the dog exercise area as an alternative and report back to the Board.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.        Approve the renewal of the dog agility equipment as part of the Radley Park Landscape Plan, as per Attachment A of this report.

 

4.   Context/Background

Issue or Opportunity

4.1      Radley Park is a Community Park located at 30 Riley Crescent, Woolston.

4.2      There are six dog agility items that are due for renewal in Radley Park.

4.3      It is proposed that these items be replaced with six similar/like-for-like items and include provision for smaller dog breeds.

4.4      In October 2018 the Radley Park Landscape Plan was approved by the Community Board.  However the dog agility equipment renewal was not approved, as staff were requested to investigate fencing around the dog exercise area instead.

4.5      The Community Board do not have the delegation to approve the renewal of park assets.  However on this occasion, as the dog agility equipment renewal was included in the original landscape plan for Radley Park, approval has been sought to ensure approval of the full Radley Park Landscape Plan. 

4.6      During the consultation on the Radley Park Landscape Plan there were 64 submissions received. The majority of submitters who commented on the dog exercise area were supportive of renewing the dog agility equipment and only one submitter specifically requested the dog exercise area be fenced.  There were also two submitters who wanted to retain the open space in the park.

4.7      The animal management team have received a total of six reports of issues with dogs in Radley Park between 2007 and 2018, not necessarily associated with the agility equipment.

4.8      Staff have investigated constructing a new fence around the dog exercise area instead of renewing the dog agility equipment, but financial rules prevent renewal funding being used for a new asset. The recommended option is to renew the dog agility equipment without the fence.  Refer to section 5.4 of this report.

4.9      The estimated cost for fencing the dog exercise area is expected to be about $43,000. This cannot be funded from the renewals budget as it is a new item, and is not currently funded.

4.10    At present there are three dog exercise areas in Christchurch which includes Radley Park, Halswell Quarry Park and Bottle Lake Forest Park, none of which are fenced.

4.11    The nearest fenced dedicated dog park to Radley Park is located approximately a 10 minute drive away at Bexley Reserve or a 15 minute drive away at Victoria Park.

4.12    Advice from the Strategic Policy team is that no changes need to be made to the Council’s Dog Policy 2016 to fence the dog exercise area at Radley Park.

4.13    The installation of the fence may require an earthworks consent, as it is in a flood hazard zone and excavation over 0.6 of a metre will require an earthworks consent.

Strategic Alignment

4.14    The renewal of the dog agility equipment in Radley Park contributes to achieving the community outcome of community satisfaction with the park.

4.15    This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

4.15.1 Activity: Parks & Foreshore

·      Level of Service: 6.0.3.0 Overall customer satisfaction with the presentation of the City’s Parks - Community Parks presentation: resident satisfaction =70 %

Decision Making Authority

4.16    As per the Christchurch City Council’s Delegation Register, 18 December 2018, the Community Board has the delegation;

4.17    5.16 Landscape Plans – Power to approve the location of, and construction of, or alteration or addition to, any structure or area, and the design of landscape plans for the same, on reserves, parks and roads, provided the design is within the policy and budget set by the Council.

4.18    The renewal of the dog agility equipment is part of the initial Radley Park Landscape Plan.

Previous Decisions

4.19    On 17 October 2018 the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board resolved (LCHB/2018/150) to:

Approve the Radley Park Landscape Plan as per Attachment A of the staff report attached to the agenda except for the renewal of the dog agility equipment and request staff to investigate the possibility of fencing of the dog exercise area as an alternative and report back to the Board.

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

4.20    The decision in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

4.21    The level of significance was determined by using the engagement and significance matrix.  Staff have considered the significance of the decision to be made by the Community Board.  Their assessment is that the matter is of low significance for the following reasons:

4.22    There is a relatively minor cost for this project, as the budget is small.

4.23    Reversal or full restoration of the park is possible and not expected to be difficult to action.

4.24    The previous community engagement and consultation on the Radley Park Landscape Plan outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

5.   Options Analysis

Options Considered

5.1      The following reasonably practicable options were considered and are assessed in this report:

·   Option 1 - Approve the renewal of the dog agility equipment as part of the Radley Park Landscape Plan (as per attachment A)

·   Option 2 - Approve the renewal of the dog agility equipment as part of the Radley Park Landscape Plan and request that staff consult with the community to understand whether they support fencing of the dog exercise area if funding becomes available in the future and report back to the Community Board.

5.2      The following option was considered but ruled out

·   Do nothing – due to the dog agility equipment nearing the end of its lifespan this option was ruled out due to public health and safety.  The Council Parks Unit have an asset condition model that considers asset life span and condition to project a renewal year of the equipment.  The dog agility equipment is due to be renewed in the 2019/20 financial year.

Options Descriptions

5.3      Option 1 - preferred option:  Approve the renewal of the dog agility equipment as part of the Radley Park Landscape Plan (refer attachment A).

5.3.1   Option Description: Renewal of the dog agility equipment, which will include the provision of dog agility equipment for smaller dog breeds.

5.3.2   Option Advantages

·      Renewal of the dog agility equipment will include the provision of equipment for small dog breeds to encourage more use of Radley Park.

·      The existing dog agility equipment is coming to the end of its useful lifespan, it is due for renewal in the 2019/20 financial year.  The current dog agility equipment was built in 1998 and is in moderate condition.

·      Renewing the equipment will address any health and safety concerns arising from the condition of the equipment for dogs and dog owners and any small children who climb on the equipment.

5.3.3   Option Disadvantages

·      Small disruption to the dog agility area during the construction period.

5.4      Option 2 - Approve the renewal of the dog agility equipment as part of the Radley Park Landscape Plan and request that staff consult with the community to understand whether they support fencing of the dog exercise area if funding becomes available in the future and report back to the Community Board.

5.4.1   The dog agility equipment is renewed and the community is consulted on an option to fence an area 1,200-1,300 mapproximately in size. If there is community support, funding would be sought in the 2022 – 2031 Long Term Plan. Refer attachment B.

5.4.2   Option Advantages

·      Would satisfy the one submitter who requested a fence.

·      Renewal of the dog agility equipment will include the provision of equipment for small dog breeds to encourage more use of Radley Park.

·      The existing dog agility equipment is coming to the end of its useful lifespan, it is due for renewal in the 2019/20 financial year.  The current dog agility equipment was built in 1998 and is in moderate condition.

·      Renewing the equipment will address any health and safety concerns arising from the condition of the equipment for dogs and dog owners and any small children who climb on the equipment.

5.4.3   Option Disadvantages

·      Further community consultation is required to understand if the community would like to see the dog exercise area fenced. A fence would change the open character of the park. This park is very well used by off-leash dog owners walking through the park and users have not specifically been asked if this is something they would support. Staff are not aware of demand for a fence apart from one submitter.

·      There is no funding available at present to construct the fencing around the dog exercise area in Radley Park, if this option was approved.  The funding CPMS 43693 – Delivery Package Play Space Renewal $20,000 has been allocated from this budget for the renewal of the dog agility equipment at Radley Park.  A ‘new’ fence is not able to be substituted for a renewal of equipment due to financial rules.

·      Funding would need to be sourced through the 2022-31 Long Term Plan in order to complete this project and there is a risk that the funding would not be secured.

·      It is estimated that the cost to fence the dog exercise area of around 1,200-1,300m(requires approximately 182 m of fencing plus two double gated entrances and a maintenance vehicle entrance) would be around $43,000.

·      Radley Park is in a flood hazard zone and a 1.8 m high fence may create issues with debris being caught up in the fence which may change the pattern of flood water.

·      Fencing the dog exercise area removes a large area of open space within the park for activities other than exercising a dog.

7.   Legal Implications

7.1      There is not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision

7.2      This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit

8.   Risks

8.1      There is a low risk of increase in costs of the dog agility equipment caused through the time delay in getting a decision on the renewal of the dog agility equipment.  The treatment of this risk is to confirm estimates and obtain a final quote as soon as the project has been approved by the Community Board.

9.   Next Steps

9.1      Following approval of the renewal of the dog agility equipment at Radley Park, detailed design and tendering of the project will begin.  Construction is expected to begin in spring 2019 and if possible be completed by the end of 2019.

Criteria 1: Climate Change Impacts

Radley Park is in a flood hazard zone.  Drainage will be considered during detailed design.

Radley Park is in a flood hazard zone.  Fencing a dog exercise area in a flood hazard zone may create issues with debris being caught up in the fence which may change the pattern of flood water.

Criteria 2: Accessibility Impacts

Accessibility level will remain as it currently is.  There is an existing sealed pathway that runs alongside the dog exercise area.

Accessibility level will remain as it currently is.  There is an existing sealed pathway that runs alongside the dog exercise area.

Criteria 3: Health & Safety Impacts

Health and Safety is improved due to a new dog agility area being installed.

In a dog exercise area owners are required to be able to control their dogs so that they do not cause nuisance to other dogs or park users.  A dog leash must also be kept in the owners hand ready for use.

The dog exercise area will be separated from other park users by a fence.  This would improve safety for park users who have a fear of dogs.  However a fenced dog exercise area should not be used to let dogs run wild and owners are still expected to be able to control their dogs and carry a leash.

Criteria 4: Future Generation Impacts

Maintain recreational opportunities for local residents and visitors

9.     Proposed Road Names - Various Subdivisions

Reference:

19/513664

Presenter(s):

Paul Lowe, Principal Advisor Resource Consents

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to consider and approve the proposed road names arising from local subdivisions.

Origin of Report

1.2      This report is staff generated resulting from naming request received from the subdivision developers.

1.3      This report relates to the following subdivisions at 58 Perth Street and 19 Forth Street.

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to:

Approve the following new road names:

1.        58 Perth Street (RMA/2019/482):

·        Laurenson Lane.

2.        19 Forth Street (RMA/2019/58):

·        Ettrick Lane.

3.        Note the update on te reo road naming.

3.   Background

Introduction

3.1      Road naming requests have been submitted by the developers for 58 Perth Street (RMA/2019/482) and 19 Forth Street (RMA/2019/58) subdivisions.  A preferred name and alternative name have been put forward by the developers. See the commentary on Te Reo names below which applies to all the subject applications.

3.2      The recommended road and/or right-of-way names have been checked against existing road names in Christchurch and bordering districts, for duplication, alternative spelling, or other similarities in spelling or pronunciation to avoid the potential for confusion. The recommended names are considered sufficiently different to existing road names.

3.3      The recommended road and/or right-of-way names have been checked against the Australia and New Zealand Standard AS/NZA 4819:2011 Rural and urban addressing. The recommended names are considered to be consistent with the Standard unless otherwise stated below.

3.4      Under the Roads and Right-of-Way- naming policy the names considered must be requested by the developer. There is not an ability to consider alternative names without first checking whether there are any duplications or similarities with other road and right-of-way names.

3.5      Consultation has been undertaken with Land Information New Zealand who have raised no concerns with the proposed road names.

3.6      The requests have been accompanied by an explanation of the background to the names which are summarised below.

 

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

3.7      The decisions in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

3.8      The level of significance was determined by the number of people affected and/or with an interest.

3.9      Due to the assessment of low significance, no further community engagement and consultation is required. 

58 Perth Street (RMA/2019/482)

3.10    Road names have been requested by Williams Corporation Trading 2 Limited for the right of way within the subdivision at 58 Perth Street. To view the right of way subject to this application refer to Attachment A.

3.11    A number of names have been put forward by the developer however there have been a number of inadvertent conflicts with the Road Naming Policy. The preferred name relates to the historic owner of the site and the second alternative name relates to the locality.

3.12    The preferred name followed by alternative names follows:

·    Laurenson Lane – The owner of this property was Linda May Laurenson, who lived on the site for over 30 years. This owner was a well-known long term resident of Richmond and the applicant would like to acknowledge this by naming the right of way after her (or at least put her name forward as one option).

·    Bingsland Lane – Richmond was originally known as Bingsland and that time contained working-class houses, small shops and artisan’s workshops.  

19 Forth Street (RMA/2019/58)

3.13    Road names have been requested by Closebrook Properties Limited for the right of way within the subdivision at 19 Forth Street. To view the right of way subject to this application refer to Attachment B.

3.14    The road names have been chosen in accordance with the theme of Scottish Rivers. The names in the surrounding area are named after Scottish Rivers and this would continue the theme.

3.15    The preferred name followed by alternative names follows;

·    Ettrick Lane

·    Annan Lane

·    Cree Lane

·    Deveron Lane

Te Reo Names

3.16    The Community Board have expressed a preference to include Te Reo options in road naming reports.  Introducing Te Reo names into this process is not straight forward. There is not yet a formal process in place to determine when a te reo name should be selected for a site or how to assess whether it is culturally appropriate.  While the work has started, this is likely to take some time to work through.  Previously most Te Reo names have been submitted by Ngāi Tahu Property.

3.17    Notwithstanding the above, staff have informed the applicants of the Board’s preference. They have made some suggestions however they are either already in use and/or staff are not yet clear on whether they are culturally appropriate because the above process has not been resolved.  It is appreciated this is not an ideal situation - however the failure to delay making a decision on these applications is likely to lead to delays in the titling process which will have a financial impact on the developers.

3.1.1   Heathcote Dredging Stage 2 Landscaping Plan  - at the Board’s 19 June 2019 meeting the Board requested:

Staff to contact the local resident who has highlighted that they have not received information on the Lower Heathcote Dredging Stage 2 Landscape Plan and advise them of the drop in session.

Staff Advice:

Staff contacted the Richardson Terrace resident on 19 June 2019.  The resident was not aware that there had been a drop in session on Ōpāwaho to Ihutai project on 30 April 2019 and had not received the start works notice.  The landscape plans were discussed and the resident did not have any concerns with the plans advising staff that he was more interested in the dredging operation and in the resident’s opinion there had not been enough information provided to the community about the dredging. 

Staff discussed the dredging’s asbestos monitoring programme and that the dredging spoil was being transported wet so it could not become airborne. The resident was satisfied with this information and the approach Council were taking.

These included Bromley, Richmond, Mt Pleasant, Heathcote, Phillipstown and the Inner City East with a range of activities, art and kai that brought communities together to welcome in the Māori New Year. Christchurch City Council Libraries were also hosting Matariki inspired events in June for the public to enjoy. One example wasMatariki in the Zone’ held by Avebury House, Richmond Community Garden and Avon Otakaro Network.  It was a huge success feeding over 500 people hangi, soup, boil up, fried bread, mulled non wine, and hot chocolate.  Avebury House, champion trees and the paddling pool were lit up with support from Linwood-Central-Heathcote and Papanui-Innes Community Boards and there were masses of kids activities - kite making, lantern making, flax weaving, wood carving, a marshmallow pit, seed bombs plus performing artists Lisa Tui and the Pirates. The Sculpture from the Red Zone Letterbox competition was revealed and the lights on bikes crew wrapped up the event with a bike ride in the dark around the Red Zone.
