PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER • By Anan Zaki THE CLOUD of uncertainty over the future of Denton Park has cleared, but uncertainty still lingers over a multi-million dollar community facility in Hornby. Denton Park supporters are “ecstatic” over the city council hearing panel recommendation to not use the park for a community facility. Save Denton Park treasurer Ross Houliston said he was pleased that the panel listened to residents and hoped this was not the end for the $35.7 million customer service, library, recreation and sports facility proposed for Hornby. •Turn to page 3 021 914 565 Fears Yaldhurst quarry decision sets a precedent • By Anan Zaki TEMPLETON RESIDENTS fear they could be next following the approval of a quarry expansion in Yaldhurst last week. Quarrying company Road Metals was given permission by Environment Canterbury to increase the size of its Yaldhurst operations, which meant it can quarry land 100m from houses. Templeton Residents Association chairman Garry Kilday labelled the decision as “ridiculous and shocking.” He and other residents have been campaigning against a proposed quarry in the area by Fulton Hogan. Mr Kilday also expressed shock over how the Canterbury District Health Board’s advice over the quarry was limited to a single paragraph on a 54-page report. “It just flies in the face of common sense. “They [ECan] completely ignored the advice from the district health board. I don’t understand how they are getting away with it,” he said. •Turn to page 7 Shoe Repairs 88B Riccarton Road • All shoe/boot repairs same day service • Shoe dyeing • Key Cutting • Shoe stretching • Watch batteries & straps • Polishes / laces / insoles • Dry-cleaning agency • Bag repairs • Zip replacement • 18 years experience • Easy Parking at rear - off Straven Road, see map.
