The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board is waiting on a report by city council staff, which will be presented in September, that will research into what youth, particularly teenagers, want for the area. Community board deputy chairman Jake McLellan said although there were plenty of facilities in the area such as ice skating and rock climbing but they tended to be aimed at a lower age group. “There is not the type of facilities in the area that a teenager would want to go to.” Mr McLellan said there has been a long-standing need for programmes and services for youth in the areas. He said one way to find out what youth want would be through a youth community board. •Turn to page 5 FREE Cataract Assessment Your eye surgery experts Specialist eye care in your area 0800 4 EYE TEST 0800 43 93 83 Longhurst Health - 53 Caulfield Ave
