The Rawhiti Domain trees will be removed because of safety concerns. But Coastal-Burwood Community Board member Tim Sintes says the tree issue in South New Brighton needs urgent attention too. He says more than 30 trees on the estuary edge are at risk of falling at any time. The community board requested an urgent safety audit at the beginning of last month. The city council has previously told Pegasus Post the South New Brighton trees were being monitored over the past six weeks. A fallen tree on the beach had been removed, along with eight pine trees near the boundary fence of the camping ground. •Turn to page 5 Poto WILLIAMS MP for Christchurch East For information and advice: P 03 382 0288 E Electorate office: 133 Brighton Mall PO Box 18898 New Brighton 8641 Office Hours Monday - Friday 9:30 - 3:00pm Authorised by Poto Williams, Parliament Buildings, Wellington BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
