Regenerate Christchurch opened an engagement hub on Sunday at 82 Estuary Rd so the public could air their concerns. The information will be Tim Sintes Hugo Kristinsson part of a fourmonth process to gauge public opinion on the issue of coastal erosion. Southshore Residents’ Association chairwoman Lynda Burdekin said while it has been an ongoing saga where nothing has happened the way forward is to work with Regenerate. “It is early days. This is the starting point,” she said. But South New Brighton Residents’ Association chairman Hugo Kristinsson said it has had a lot of meetings with Regenerate and there was always the same outcome –“lots of delays”. “At the end of this there will probably be another timeline that avoids action . . . this is what they continue to do year after year,” he said. The association passed a vote of no confidence in Regenerate last year. Coastal-Burwood Community Board deputy chairman Tim Sintes said a lot of people from South New Brighton attended the engagement hub on Sunday. He said the concerns raised included flood protection for future emergencies and the future of South New Brighton School. On Thursday, Southshore Residents Association, Sustain New Brighton and Christchurch Coastal Residents’ United met with Regenerate Christchurch to discuss a timeline for public consultation and a future strategy. The South New Brighton Residents’ Association did not take up the invitation to attend. •Turn to page 5 FILL UP FOR LESS WITH YOUR GOLD CARD. 15 *Terms and Conditions apply. 111-115 Milton Street Phone 332-6056 as local as you are | BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
