PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Skellerup site prompts investigation • By Bridget Rutherford CITY COUNCIL staff are investigating whether changes can be made to the District Plan to increase a noise buffer between residents and industrial activities. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board requested staff look into it after concerns about a scrap metal company operating from the former Skellerup site in Woolston. National Steel has occupied part of the site since January and began crushing vehicles in late February. Between then and March 22 the city council received eight complaints about the noise. An investigation found most noise levels complied with the District Plan. But city councillor Yani Johanson said the District Plan was too “submissive” and meant the community had no say. “I think personally there’s a real need for an industrial buffer.” The city council is unable to change the District Plan until the Government revokes the Canterbury Earthquakes Order 2014, which dictated what was in it.

The board visited South New Brighton and met with a city council arborist on Friday in a bid to fast forward a plan to remove the risk they pose. The board previously had concerns the trees were at risk of falling over. The arborist said on Friday about one or two trees pose that risk and if they fall, they will fall into the estuary. It has asked for a report from city council staff for a resolution and to find out how many trees will need to be removed, when they need to be removed and the cost. The city council decided last year to address the erosion issue as part of the Southshore and South New Brighton Regeneration Strategy. •Turn to page 5 Poto WilliaMS MP for Christchurch East Community Clinics I will be coming to your neighbourhood on a bi-monthly basis to hear your concerns.
