Removal of Rawhiti Domain trees a ‘double standard’ • By Sophie Cornish THE REMOVAL of seven trees in Rawhiti Domain has been labelled a “double standard” following a request for an urgent safety audit of trees on the South New Brighton estuary edge. 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 7 WINNER of the 2017 FRANchIsEE oF thE YEAR home services Follow us on Facebook @Dream Doors Christchurch for design inspiration Amazing Kitchen Facelifts! • Replacement doors • Drawer fronts • panels & bench tops • or a complete brand new kitchen, all made to measure.
