The Coastal-Burwood Communtiy Board has asked police chiefs to open the Seaview Rd station on Saturday morning. The move is being backed by New Brighton Business and Landowners Association’s Paul Lonsdale. “There are concerns by businesses that there has been an increase of shop theft lately and we have been in talks with police on how to mitigate those issues and find solutions,” he said. Community board member and city councillor David East said police also needed to consider opening longer on weekdays than its current 9am-4pm. City councillor Glenn Livingstone said with the new beachside playground and salt water hot pools, increased police presence in the area would be beneficial. “Having them on site would make a lot more sense.” Currently police are required to come from Papanui for call-outs to eastern suburbs during the weekends.
