A behind-closed-door meeting between Development Christchurch Ltd and city councillors revealed problems with financing the project, which may put it in jeopardy, the Pegasus Post has learned. DCL is a part of Christchurch City Holdings Limited, and was tasked with rejuvenating New Brighton and its commercial core. City councillor David East said he could not go into the detail of the meeting held last Monday but said there were problems with “costings.’’ “The coastal promenade needs a bit more work on it before it goes ahead at this stage,” he said.

It is proposed to be installed between Waimairi and North Beach surf clubs. The promenade was proposed to be 9m wide and 900m long. The good news is the $5m hot salt water pools project is looking more feasible, said Cr East. “The hot salt water pools side of things is looking very positive. But I think with the promenade it was more of an indicative pricing from DCL . . . councillors want to get the hot salt water pools, but the promenade is looking costly and needs more work,” he said. Strategic Urban Rejuvenation Force co-ordinator Lesley Fulton said the community had been “waiting long enough” and the sooner the projects got under way, the better. “The promenade would have benefits for the area, but a minimal impact I feel. The hot salt water pools would be hugely beneficial, and from a selfish point of view, I’m thinking of my own family, and they’d love it,” she said. DCL chief executive Rob Hall said Monday’s meeting was an informal update on progress for councillors on both the hot salt water pools and promenade projects. “Some final work needs to be done to prepare a formal report for council consideration and decision-making and more detail will be able to be shared publicly at that stage. Community feedback will be sought on all planned projects for New Brighton,” he said.
