Ms Dalziel hopes to meet with Superintendent John Price early next month, as finding solutions to anti-social behaviour at the bus lounge linger. The lounge, on the corner of Riccarton Rd and Division St, has been plagued with youth issues since it opened in December 2015. A working party, consisting of Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board members, business and landowners, police, community groups and residents’ association representatives, From new builds to small home alterations, we specialise in turning your dream home ideas into reality. Call the name you can trust! has made 19 recommendations to help solve the issues. They include extending bus lounge closing times, playing music in Division St, which would attract more people to the area, and changing the current bus lounge wi-fi policies. City councillors also decided to lobby central Government to request a review of the Local Government Act bylaw provisions that would allow arrests to be made or instant fines to be issued for breaching a bylaw. Ms Dalziel said instant fines can be effective but not if you don’t have the money to pay them, which a lot of children and their parents do not. •Turn to page 7 377 0034 www.dimocks.net.nz
