SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday March 21 2018 7 News Plan approved for Rolleston DESIGN: The location plan outlining where elements including a movie cinema, retail outlets and the new library and community centre will be as part of the Rolleston town centre master plan. • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PLANS TO bring Rolleston’s town centre to life has taken a major step forward. The district council approved the location plan for the new Rolleston town centre to go ahead at its public meeting last week. It means the design phase for the project can now get under way. It comes after 10 years of discussion and consultation with the public – with the master plan first adopted by the district council in 2014. The plan lays out where key elements within the master plan will be located within Moore, and Tennyson Sts and Rolleston Drive. It is made up of four components – a new Rolleston Library and Community Centre, the Rolleston Town Square, transportation/service linkages and commercial/retail area. The planned complex also includes a movie theatre, retail and food and beverage outlets. The recommended plan sees the library and community centre located at a key corner of the reserve and Tennyson St, with direct pedestrian access to car parking in Moore St. Mayor Sam Broughton said to see the work done to give Rolleston a “beating heart” is a huge accomplishment for the district council. He said the district council wants to complete the master plan over the next five years. Ten options of how the town centre could be laid out was reduced down to three – with option A selected by the district council last week. Project manager Joanne Nikolaou said this is “definitely a milestone.” She said the preferred option placing the library and community centre at the top of the Rolleston Reserve was the best option as it interlinks the reserve and community centre and is a drawcard to bring people through the site. Parts of the plan had already been completed – including roading projects such as the Tennyson/Kidman roundabout and the development of Foster Park. District councillor Mark Alexander said the project is a hub for the future for not only Rolleston but Selwyn. “I think this a good step on the journey. So let’s just get on with it and get it done,” he said. • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE FIRST step has been made to upgrade one of Springfield’s oldest buildings. The St Peter’s Community Church has been given a facelift, with its roof re-painted recently. It comes after the committee has been calling for the Springfield community to support its bid to re-paint the roof and undertake repairs to the woodwork on the exterior.

The committee’s chairman Graeme Dawson said it was pretty special and the money saved was possibly the difference between the project going ahead and not going ahead. “The timing was excellent . . . we had to get it done before the winter,” Mr Dawson said. In a bid to get other repair work under way, the church’s congregation is now planning to continue to run various fundraising ventures to preserve the building. The church was originally built in 1885. fall in Love with your favourite furniture all over again.
