City council staff briefed the Hagley- Ferrymead Community Board last week ahead of a deputation by Linwood community members and Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson to the city council on August 11. The group, which includes schools and doctors, want the city council to take action on the issue. A petition supporting the call, organised by Linwood resident Tracie Charnock, has received more than 600 signatures. Possible methods of tackling the matter include a bylaw, district plan change or national policy statement by the Government. City council solicitor Vivienne Wilson advised that creating a bylaw could be difficult and there were many questions that would have to be resolved, including how fast food stores and low socio-economic areas would be defined. “My job is try and keep the Special introductory offer Fujitsu ASTG24L 8 KW council out of court and I have real concerns about that,” Ms Wilson said. “I have no doubt that if we try and do something novel and new with a bylaw, we will be Hot Hot Deal Restore your oiled CEDAR BLINDS with our re-oiling service.

Email: challenged.” City council team leader policy Claire Bryant advised that the district plan had been finalised and, due to earthquake recovery legislation, it would now be difficult to make changes before 2021 unless Mr Brownlee ordered them. Community board chairwoman Sara Templeton said all options sounded “difficult and time consuming, which is a real concern” but the quickest way to get a result would probably be for the city council to ask Mr Brownlee to make the district plan changes. However, she believed Mr Brownlee might be unwilling to do so, given a letter of expectations he had written indicating obstacles to development in the district plan should be removed. City councillor Yani Johanson said he would be in favour of asking Mr Brownlee to make changes. “I can’t see any reasons why [a plan change] couldn’t happen quite quickly,” Cr Johanson said. “We have one of the most permissive plans in the country which allows anything to go anywhere.” Mr Brownlee did not respond to a request for comment.
