Coastal-Burw od Ward city counci lor David East wants WorkSafe to pre sure the car park’s private owners into repairing the potholes which are a “trip and vehicle” hazard. WorkSafe chief inspector a se sments southern Da ren Handforth said it may be able to take action under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a person conducting a busine s or undertaking.” Mr Handforth said WorkSafe is aware of the concerns raised by Cr East abou the car park. “WorkSafe has completed an a se sment visi to the site and is engaging with the owner to advise them that it is their responsibility to manage their risks a propriately.” Different parts of the car park are owned by various people and the Coastal-Burw od Community Board recently wrote to them about its concerns around health and safety. Cr East said the bi gest i sue in the past has b en ge ting in touch with the landlords and owners and ge ting them to agr e to anything. “The board a preciates that multi-ownership of the parking space may present a difficulty in co-ordinating repair/resurfacing but felt obliged to pa s these concerns onto you,” said the le ter. One reply has b en received so far from an owner who is willing to discu s the i sue. However, a l the owners would have to agr e to undertake work. Cr East said there had b en a “number of incidences” in the car park of people injuring themselves which had gone unreported. “I’ve always though that it has b en quite amazing that we haven’t had any serious a cidents or senior citizens perhaps tri ping in those potholes and doing themselves some damage.” He is confiden the new a proach wi l bring results. “I think the WorkSafe involvement may prove to be the lever that we are l oking for.” New bid to fix potholes Action looms on Hawke St car park HAZARD: Coastal-Burwood Ward city counci lor David East wants WorkSafe New Zealand to put pre sure on the Hawke St car park owners to fix the dangerous potholes.

Bittersweet win for St Andrew’s big band • By Sophie Cornish and Julia Evans THE PAPANUI-I nes Community Board has taken the rare step of starting a petition to figh the city council over funding. Signatures are being co lected in a bid to get funding for a community facility in Shirley. It comes after the city council removed funding for the centre pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the intersection with Hi ls Rd. This was the site of the former community centre, which was badly damaged in the February 2, 20 1, earthquake. The removal o funding prompted community board chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten to stand down, citing it as her “die in the ditch” project. Ms Jones said the board’s role is to represen the community, and by gathering signatures from residents, it was fulfi ling that role. “One of the roles of a community board is to represent and act as advocate for the interests of its community and this is what we are doing.

Body corporate chairman Mike White said the group had gone into mediation with IAG and EQC on February 20, and signed off on a deal with IAG on February 2 – coincidenta ly seven years to the day after the February 2, 20 1, earthquake. However, they are waiting for EQC to sign the agr ement. “Given that EQC actua ly drafted the agr ement, there’ l be no problem with them doing that.” The apartments suffered damage in the February and June, 20 1, earthquakes and were demolished in late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the difference betw en indemnity value, $10 mi lion, and the sum insured, $16 mi lion, was rejected by the body corporate. The mediation agr ement prevented Mr White from disclosing the se tlement amount, but he said it involved the two parties paying “a bit more money than they’d wanted to earlier.” •Turn to page 6 Page 7 Page 10 Fishin’ for weeds Children’s event at risk if The Groynes’ lakes not cleaned up Pedaling across NZ Stroke survivor finishes long journey TUESDAY, APRIL 10, 2018 www.star.kiwi Loca ly Owned www.denturesouth.co.nz ca l 32 4 04 TexT 027 537 0567 230 Ba ringTon sTr eT Mobile Service Available A NEW 60km/h sp ed limit and double ye low lines wi l be in place on Dyers Pa s Rd by early May.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Cottam said yesterday the vehicle involved in the crash last week was still being examined. He said there was still a lot of work to do to gather all the information and finish police inquiries before any charges would be laid. “They can take some time,” he said. “We’ve got six months to lay charges in relation to traffic offending – it certainly won’t take that long.” Steffan Pearce- Loe (right), 30, was hit by a vehicle near the Gayhurst Rd bridge while walking his dogs at about 2.30am last Thursday. He died in hospital from his injuries on Friday. His funeral was held on Tuesday. Police found the vehicle involved, which had damage consistent with the crash, on Saturday. A detective saw it parked up a driveway. The vehicle’s owner, who was driving, has been interviewed by police. Detective Senior Sergeant Cottam remained tight-lipped about the driver. •Turn to page 6 Decision on hit-and-run charges could take time Thursday, July 12, 2018 SEE PAGE 33 SEE PAGE 35 Cheeky Neo surprises Huia PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Huia Sinclair-Parker, 10, was at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve for Kidfest’s ‘Junior Keeper for the Day’ programme yesterday when Neo swooped in. Having Neo, the kea, on her shoulder was exciting, “but scary at the same time.” “It jumped on me from behind and gave me a surprise. They have sharp claws that dug into my shoulders.” Children aged from 10-13 are working with Willowbank keepers during the holidays. School Secretary Previous school office experience preferred.
