The two well-known local body politicians were main drivers behind the $30 million water park. But their plans were sunk when the city council scuppered the plan. Cr East (left) is standing again for the city council in the new Coastal Ward, and Mr Sintes will try to be voted back in on the Burwood-Coastal Community Board. ​Cr East said it wasn’t through lack of trying that the planned water park was aborted. “Ultimately what got in the road was the assessment that the city council did, the terms of reference didn’t allow it to proceed,” he said. Cr East said he was confident of being re-elected, in spite of recent news he is holding onto his director fee – worth about $45,000 – for running Transwaste Canterbury Ltd. “I don’t think [it will affect the campaign].

There are a whole lot of complexities and issues involved in that, and a whole host of things that need to be resolved. “You’re never supremely confident, I won’t be taking this election lightly. I believe I have a reasonable measure of support and I’ll be campaigning on a number of issues and looking to back that up with my track record to underpin the campaign,” Cr East said. He said key focuses of his campaign would be the hot salt water pool plan going ahead, finishing the infrastructure and roading programme, and the coastal promenade. Mr Sintes (left) said the water park was the most disappointing part of his term on the board. The idea was pitched on “the back of us being told that QE II (Park) could never be built on again”. He and Cr East would not have brought the idea up “if we had known the QE II site could have been built on again”. “I’d like to think I have a similar support group as I did in 2013. I wasn’t elected just for the water park . . . I’ll be looking for better deals for the east – more action, less talk,” Mr Sintes said. RE-ELECTION: David East said his failed bid to get a water park for New Brighton won’t affect his chances of retaining his seat around the city council table. BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
