Pleasant, Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay, Akaroa Critics of coastal hazards fearful • By Annabelle Dick TWO OUTSPOKEN critics of the land information coastal hazards controversy fear they may be left off a new group that could be set up to resolve the issue. The city council is proposing to form a community advisory group to work with it on fixing problems with hazards notations on coastal property’s land information memorandums. But Christchurch Coastal Residents United chairman Tim Sintes and spokesman Darrell Latham are worried they won’t be chosen to sit on the group because of their previous comments against the city council’s Coastal Hazards Assessment Report. The report, compiled last year, Tim Sintes Darrell Latham found 18,000 coastal homes were at risk of erosion and flooding and that information went on effected homeowner’s LIM reports. Christchurch Coastal Residents United has been highly-critical in Bay Harbour News of city council chief executive Dr Karleen Edwards’ handling of the report and Mayor Lianne Dalziel’s unwillingness to change LIMs. •Turn to page 6 Old age catches up with well-loved Tama • By Annabelle Dick LYTTELTON’S BEST known canine has finally succumbed to sickness and age.
