The sculpture, by Southshore’s Bon Suter, was poised to go on land near the Bridge St bridge but the project nearly became unstuck when no-one knew who owned the land. The city council thought it was actually “no-man’s land” – not capable of being owned by anyone. But now city council staff have discovered that the small section of land was deemed a road reserve so it can give permission for the sculpture to proceed. City councillor David East (right) told the Pegasus Post that the city council is working through the consenting process. “As long as we are at the outer extremities of the road reserve we should be able to get consent there . . . at this stage we need engineering concepts for foundations required,” he said. Cr East said he was “reasonably confident” that as long as the project was granted resource consent, it would go ahead. “When we have some designs up and running we can then look at consenting issues In May the South Brighton Residents’ Association asked the Burwood-Pegasus Community Board to grant them funds to complete the project subject to them finding a site. The idea was approved and about $4000 granted for Ms Suter to begin designing, with a further $8000 to be allocated when a location was found. Residents’ association chairman Hugo Kristinsson said he was pleased to hear that it looked as though the project would go ahead. Coastal Ward city councillor David East said progress is now being made. Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim Money said the sculptures would be “absolutely brilliant” for the community. “To have that will be such a boost and really exciting for the community . . . public art is extremely important,” she said. SCULPTURE PROGRESS: After confusion over the ownership of land near the Bridge St bridge, progress is being made on the installation of a godwits sculpture. ​ Dara looks for good showing in champs Rawhiti School’s Dara O’Malley is one of the favourites to take out the year 7 boy’s title at this weekend’s South Island Primary School Champs at North Beach.
