THose fighting the park from being used for Hornby’s $35.7 million sport and community centre say public consultation early next year could be their last chance to stop Denton Park being the site for the project. This follows the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting last week, where the reclassification process for Denton Park was approved. In order to build on 9766 sq m of the park, the reserve classification has to change. Save Denton Park group chairman Mark Peters is wanting locals to take a stand for the park in the public consultation process which starts on January 20 and goes until March 24. He also suggested residents should have their say beforehand as well. “We have to fight to keep our local park,” Mr Peters said. Sitting in on the last week’s meeting was the city council’s chief executive officer Karleen Edwards. Mr Peters said it was “intimidating” having her there, but also granted her “credit for showing up.” He said the meeting went better than expected and he was happy he was able to give a deputation to the board. •Turn to page 8 Hearing, the way nature intended.
