M 027 433 4141 Harcourts Grenadier Ferrymead - Licensed Sales Consultant REAA 2008 Urgent meeting called over harbour ferry bus parking plan Fou • By Sarla Donovan AN URGENT meeting is being sought with the Lyttelton Port Company about its proposal for the Diamond Harbour Ferry terminal. The Banks Peninsula Community Board has asked for the meeting after Bay Harbour News revealed two weeks ago the LPC’s decision to reduce bus parking spaces to one and not provide a pickup/drop-off zone. Christine Wilson “I know there’s a lot of anxiety about this from residents in Lyttelton and Diamond Harbour,” said board chairwoman Christine Wilson. “The board needs to know where the LPC is coming from – urgently – and we need confirmation from the port of what their position is.” Concerns about the changes were raised by Diamond Harbour Community Association chairman Richard Suggate at a board meeting on Monday. LPC is building a new staff car park next to the ferry terminal, resulting in only one bus able to use the terminal at a time – currently there is space for up to three. •Turn to page 6 •Editor’s desk, page 2 ACCESS: Ferry passengers won’t be able to be picked up or dropped off at an informal area within the car park once the Lyttelton Port Company upgrades the area.
