SEE INSIDE FOR THE LATEST BETTER LIVING & LEISURE MAY 2017 BETTER LIVING & LEISURE MAY 2017 THESE THREE power brokers hold the key to easing the pain of thousands of people who struggle daily to get a car park close to Christchurch Hospital. But incredibly, the new Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration and MP for Christchurch Central Nicky Wagner (top), Canterbury District Health Board acting chief executive Mary Gordon (middle) and Mayor Lianne Dalziel are not talking to each other about the Hagley Park Hospital Corner solution. OFFER FIT A FUJITSU In the past two weeks The Star has been asking people if Hospital Corner should be used as a temporary car park. The feedback has been a resounding: YES.

But asked yesterday why she had not raised it with the city council or hospital board Mrs Wagner said: “It’s not part of my responsibility to solve parking problems around the hospital. I know each of them (CDHB, city council, Otakaro Ltd) have their positions and I’m not going to try and change their minds.” •Turn to page 5 Restore your oiled CEDAR BLINDS with our NEW re-oiling service.

Burglary spree cracked in city • By Andrew King INSIDE INSIDE WEST COAST WEEKEND WEST COAST WEEKEND POLICE APPEAR to have broken a major burglary ring targeting homes in Christchurch’s northwest suburbs. Eighty-three houses have been burgled in Ilam, Bryndwr and Strowan over the past 10 weeks. They have been carried out during the day when householders were not there. A 30-yearold was arrested on Friday and since then the number of burglaries had dropped, Detective Sergeant Ross Tarawhiti said yesterday. Police believe there are other people linked to the arrested man who were also allegedly involved in the break-ins. Jewellery and other quickly moveable items such as cellphones have been stolen. The arrested man was ambushed by detectives on Friday who were in Ilam investigating the break-ins. He was allegedly spotted coming out of a property and then observed going into others. The detectives then pounced, apprehending the 30-year-old. He appeared in the district court on Friday charged with two counts of burglary and possession of instruments used for burglary, and a small amount of cannabis. •Turn to page 4 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
