2 Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Inside Tuesday June 27 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THE DISCUSSION carries on behind closed doors over the wheel clamping signs in Lincoln (see page 3). The district council and the cafe’s owner are both saying little publicly now after we exposed potential trouble on the horizon over the signage. As we reveal today there is real confusion looming for motorists looking for a park when the cafe opens next month. There are district council 120 time limit signs outside the cafe and adjacent child care centre which to me says anyone can park there for a maximum of 120min. The signage covers 12 parallel car parks – seven outside the child care centre; five for the cafe. But also on the three poles are signs saying you will be clamped or towed if you aren’t a cafe customer – for all 12 car parks.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday June 27 2017 3 News Lincoln signs confuse motorists THE DISTRICT council is still considering legal advice over the wheel clamping tow away signs in Lincoln. Two weeks ago the Selwyn Times revealed the signage had been put up by the new Black Door Bar and Eatery Cafe in Robert St. It is due to open next month on the site of the former Tea House. But whether the signage complies with the resource consent is under investigation. Neither the district council would discuss where the matter was at when contacted by the Selwyn Times. Said council environmental services manager Tim Harris: “The council is still considering legal advice and is working with the owner of the Black Door Bar and Eatery to try and resolve this issue. We don’t have any further comments to make while we are in discussions with the owner on this issue.” The parties met last Wednesday. Owner Anita Alder said she was waiting on the district council to make a response from the meeting and would not comment on the issue for now. Lincoln people spoken to by the Selwyn Times said they were confused by the signage. The cafe posted warnings it could clamp or tow vehicles not being used by customers parked outside of its Robert St premises and adjacent the Lincoln Village Pre-School and Nursery. But the signage is on district council poles where there are also 120min maximum parking signs. People said they believed they could park there even if they weren’t cafe customers – but would be reluctant to risk in case they were clamped or towed away. The cafe has five parallel parks and the child care centre seven car parks on Robert St. Last week some of the clamping signage disappeared, but they have returned.

The second stage of construction is being financed by the Little River Rail Trail Trust, with a construction start date for this work to be confirmed.
