Wednesday April 11 2018 Your Local Views Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi BAY HARBOUR PAGE 9 Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee The city council’s Long Term Plan is out for public consultation until 5pm, Friday. If you want to have your say, do it now, writes Labour MP for Port Hills Ruth Dyson THERE ARE many areas which are of importance to us and the well-being of our communities, but I thought I would just highlight a few that are of local significance. The first big issue is how much we do and how fast – and, therefore, what our rating base should be for the period in question. There is a 5.5 per cent rates increase proposed. Everyone would like it to be less I am sure, but that would mean that our horizontal infrastructure would get worse rather than improve, and community facilities would not be able to proceed until later. So, if we are asking for additional spending, the money has to come from cutting something that is FEEDBACK: City council funding for the Naval Point Yacht Club redevelopment is one of several important issues in the Lyttelton area. Have a say on the LTP on budget or a slightly increased rates increase. Worthwhile considering. Roads, pipes and footpaths must continue to be improved and, likewise, our community facilities, such as libraries, swimming pools and community centres, need to continue to be progressed. A lot of people express concerns about the need to do more on parks maintenance. The Linwood-Woolston pool needs to stay on budget, support for the Naval Point Club and Coastguard‘s new build is important for the area as is security of use for the rugby club changing facility. Reserve management committees, such as Urumau need to be financially supported and we should continue to support funding for the coastal pathway – a regional asset. So is the balance of spending and rating about right? Let the city council know – it’s your money and your community. •To make a submission on the Long Term Plan, visit https://www.ccc.govt. nz/the-council/plans-strategies-policiesand-bylaws/plans/long-term-plan-andannual-plans/ltp/ways-to-have-your-say/ Come along and find out about water matters that effect you. At the next Banks Peninsula Water Zone meeting we will be discussing septic tanks on the peninsula, how we can better manage the impacts of forestry on our waterways and a cool new programme ‘nature agents’ involving kids monitoring their local waterways on the Peninsula. There will also be dedicated time for community members to ‘have their say’. Hope to see you there! Date: Tuesday 17th April Time: 4pm Where: Allandale Hall Governors Bay facebook.com/canterburywater The Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee is a communityled committee supported by Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury.
