The children took part in various sports during their own version of the Olympics last week. •For more photos turn to page 13 • By Annabelle Dick THE CITY council’s decision to alter wording on thousands of property reports affected by coastal hazards has been described as a “gutless” move. Christchurch Coastal Residents United spokesman Dr Darrell Latham is reeling after the city council tweaked unreliable coastal hazard information listed on Land Information Memorandum for homes in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula. The city council altered the details put on LIMs on Monday after a review of the original Coastal Hazards Assessment Report found more scientific work needed to be done. Dr Darrell Latham said in spite of altering the report, the information showing properties are at risk from coastal hazards has been left on LIMs. He said the city council is “gutless” for only tweaking the wording. “The information needs to be correct and the peer review from the coastal experts is the best available information. The council needs to listen to the recommendations and remove it from LIMs because it’s legally unsound,” he said. The original Tonkin & Taylor report found numerous houses in the area are at risk of coastal erosion and flooding and that information has gone on affected homeowners’ LIM reports. The review panel urged the city council to remove it and undertake more research because the maps identifying atrisk properties could be legally unsound. •Turn to page 5 Lyttelton & Ferrymead MALIBU OR KAHLUA 700ML HIGHLAND QUEEN 1 LITRE GORDON’S 1 LITRE 42 BELOW PURE & FLAVOURS 700ML SuperSonicDeals Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat only TEACHER’S $ 32 99* 1 LITRE *OFFER VALID WEDNESDAY 7TH SEPTEMBER TO SATURDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER 2016.
