Dealing with fast food odour • By Caitlin Miles SICK OF the smell from a fast food outlet wafting through your neighbourhood? If so, phone Environment Canterbury’s 24-hour pollution hotline. That’s the advice from the city council after they thrashed out how to deal with a Linwoodled campaign to curb the number of fast food outlets close to schools. On Thursday, the city council decided the best way to deal with issues at the moment was to complain to ECan if the odour from fast food outlets is “objectionable”. City council staff have been asked to report back on progress made whether an amendment could be made the district plan to restrict the location and signage of fast food outlets in proximity to schools. A group consisting of Linwood College, Linwood Avenue School, parents, Linwood Medical Centre and Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson expressed their concerns around putting in rules restricting the ability of fast food outlets to proliferate around schools and low income areas. McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King are among the fast food outlets based around the intersection of Linwood Ave and Buckleys Rd, which are close to Linwood Avenue School. City councillors agreed also to lobby for change with Government and the Ministry of Education to consider building future schools away from fast food outlets. The change will have to come from Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration Gerry Brownlee, because the city council can’t change its own district plan until 2021. •Turn to page 4 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
