SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Wednesday August 29 2018 7 News dont forget! Cadbury Chocolate Block 155-205g $ 2 99 ea CHANGES: A petition has been started for a second, larger dog park in Rolleston after a fence was installed in the Foster Park dog exercise area last week. Fence at dog park prompts users into starting petition • By Emily O’Connell MORE THAN 370 people have signed a petition for the district council to create a second, larger dog park in Rolleston. This follows a fence being built in the Rolleston dog park last week so part of it can be closed off to the public while the Selwyn Dog Training Club is taking sessions. Concerns have been raised over the district council’s new structure at the Foster Park dog exercise area on the corner of Springston, Rolleston and Goulds Rds on the Rolleston Community Page on Facebook. “Where was the consultation from the council?” one person commented. “Looks like they have made a total mess of the park. What an eyesore now,” another person said. In Brief WELCOMING PLAN Selwyn’s Welcoming Plan was launched on Friday. It outlines how the district council will celebrate the increasing population and diversity, and what activities it will deliver to ensure Selwyn is even more welcoming for newcomers and migrants. The plan is part of the two-year Welcoming Communities pilot programme which the district council was chosen to take part in along with eight other councils in five regions across the country. John Reid “Actually looks like a pretty good rural fence to me,” a person wrote. District council major projects property manager John Reid said it does not have a view on the petition and there are no plans for another dog park in Rolleston. “Any future developments will need to go through Annual or Long Term Plan processes,” he In 10 years the district’s population is expected to grow to 79,000. This is a significant increase from the current population of 59,000. FIRST AID COURSE The Ladbrooks Community Hall Committee is sponsoring an accredited first aid course on September 15 and 16. There are free places available for residents of the Ladbrooks rating area. For more information phone 322 4490 in the evenings or email said. Mr Reid said the fence is a result of complaints from people about training sessions being difficult to conduct when other dogs are running through the area. “Public dog owners are also finding it hard to supervise their dogs without interrupting dog training,” he said. The Selwyn Dog Training Club uses the park on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6.30- 9pm, on Sundays from 10am-noon and on the occasional weekend for competitions. There is no final cost for the fence yet as it has just been completed. However, in July Mr Reid told Selwyn Times it was expected to cost about $5000-$7000. The fence is a permanent structure. However, it is being described as “temporary” because it will have a number of large gates that will be left open, except when the club is running a training session. •To view or sign the petition, please visit selwyn-district-councilbuild-another-dog-parkin-rolleston. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think Rolleston needs another dog park?
