Linda Stewart says the Coastal Burwood Community Board’s relationship with the city councilowned Development Christchurch Ltd is “fragmented.” Ms Stewart said DCL has failed to connect with both the community board and residents. Last month fellow board member and city councillor Glenn Livingstone criticised DCL’s communication with the board. Said Ms Stewart: “I feel things are fragmented right now, and that we aren’t involved in their consultation . . . a public meeting is needed where everyone can ask questions and everyone hears the answer instead of these online questionnaires run by council.” But city councillor and community board member David East said there was no problem with communication with DCL. “I feel there is more than appropriate contact between DCL and the board. They attend our meetings on a regular basis. The chair and deputy are in contact regularly,” he said. Mr East said he was unsure why Cr Livingstone and Ms Stewart were critical. DCL chairman Bill Dwyer said he was “perplexed” by the community board’s dissatisfaction. Cr Livingstone said he wants the community board and local residents to be more involved with decisions DCL was making about the suburb’s future. •Turn to page 3 David East Toughing it out against the odds It may have been a slightly chilly day to be barrelling down a foam-covered slippery slide but Chisnallwood Intermediate pupils Josh Cooper (left), Bailey Riddell-Gowans (standing) and Cheyne Milligan are tough kids.
