PAGE 2 Wednesday May 2 2018 BAY HARBOUR Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi get in touch from the editor’s desk IF AARON Keown strays into the Bay Harbour News area, give him a clip (verbal of course) around the ear. On page 1 today, we report he had a crack at Banks Peninsula. Keown, a Harewood Ward city councillor, compares Banks Peninsula to a high-maintenance Merivale wife. His comments came during the city council Long Term Plan hearings after the Banks Peninsula Community Board’s funding request for projects. Mayor Lianne Dalziel struck back for Banks Peninsula, while community board chairwoman Pam Richardson and the public gallery laughed at the remark, which was of course typically Keown. We’ve kindly illustrated the article with a head shot of Keown so feel free to escort him back to the border should he turn up. – Barry Clarke GENERAL ENQUIRIES Ph 379 7100 CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING Ph 379 1100 The Christchurch Star Company Ltd PO box 1467, Christchurch starmedia.kiwi NEWS Sarla Donovan Ph: 021 919 917 firstname.lastname@example.org ADVERTISING Javier Balcazar Ph: 982 9308 javier.balcazar@ starmedia.kiwi Rob Davison Ph: 021 225 8584 rob.davison@ starmedia.kiwi Historic railway road fixed Railway Tce brought back to life How the cost of fixing a quake-damaged Heathcote Valley street fell on home-owners.

Wednesday May 2 2018 News • By Sarla Donovan IT’S OFFICIAL – the community’s favoured site for a skate park is 26 Nayland St. Consultation results were released last week, and from 534 submissions a whopping 314 (58 per cent) supported the former Marine Tavern site. Sumner beach was the second most popular with 109 supporters, and the former Redcliffs School site third with 78. Scott Park was a distant fourth with just 28 in favour. Five submitters did not select a ranking preference. The Linwood-Central- Heathcote Community Board was to make a decision in April, but it is now likely to be August before the matter is put to the board. That’s because the city council is in discussions with the Crown around ownership of the adjacent sites at 20/24 Nayland St, said head of parks Brent Smith. The board has also requested a soil test at 26 Nayland St to “further inform their decision-making for a site,” he said. Sumner Green and Skate spokeswoman Liza Sparrow said the group was “delighted” 26 Nayland St had proven the most popular site for the permanent skate area, as it would enable a village green to be developed adjacent to it. “We are now one step closer to achieving the goal of having a recreation space within the heart of the village,” said Ms Sparrow.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER “If 26 Nayland St is approved for use by our community board, Sumner Green and Skate will continue to work with the city council to ensure that this project is completed in a way which best meets the needs of our community.” In the meantime, the group is fundraising for landscaping and upkeep around the temporary ramp on the Nayland St/ Wakefield Ave corner, which Ms Sparrow said may be in place until 2021. •To donate visit: https:// givealittle.co.nz/cause/letsget-our-ramp-open BAY HARBOUR Local News Now In Brief PAGE 3 Fire rages, homes at risk SUSPECTED BURGLAR CAUGHT Police are asking anyone who has been burgled in the Lyttelton or Opawa area in recent weeks, or disturbed an unknown man on their property and not reported it, to phone Lyttelton Police on 378 0200 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. A 30-year-old Lyttelton resident was last week arrested and charged with seven counts of burglary and one of theft from a vehicle. He is scheduled to appear in court on May 15. INTERSECTION CHANGE REJECTED A proposal to stop traffic on Brittain Tce from turning left or right onto Simeon Quay has been rejected by the Banks Peninsula Community Board, citing the effect on other intersections in the area and the impact on local traffic. The proposal was intended to improve traffic flow to and from Governors Bay, but sparked a backlash from residents, with 41 submissions on the proposal and only 14 per cent of those in favour. The board said it would reconsider changes if necessary, after the Naval Point recreation area was developed.
