P: 384 7950 M: 0274 318 960 E: LICENSED SALES CONSULTANT REAA 2008 • By Matt Salmons RESIDENTS WILL get a chance to voice ideas on how to use around 50 pockets of red-zoned land between the Heathcote Valley and Sumner this week. A meeting set for tomorrow night at Redcliffs’ St Andrew’s Church would allow residents to share their ideas and talk to Land Information New Zealand about the process of bringing them to life. Sumner Community Residents Association member Liza Sparrow said food forests and community gardens were common suggestions, but people might want anything. “Someone might want to put a disco mat on it, who knows. “We’ve got this beautiful land that can’t have houses on it, but we might be able to use it.” The meeting would be split into two parts – one hour of background information and IDEA: Jocelyn Papprill at the red-zoned site where a group of Mt Pleasant residents hope to get a food forest established. ​ then an hour to discuss ideas in groups. “We’ll also have Jane Gregg from Life in Vacant Places who will explain projects that have happened in the city, that they’ve done short-term,” Ms Sparrow said. Mt Pleasant Residents’ Association member Jocelyn Papprill said she had been part of a group looking into starting a food forest since last year. The Aratoro Pl site was close enough to the Mt Pleasant Community Centre, she said, that produce could be used for jam making or food preservation classes. •Turn to page 4 Real Estate Know How • Multi-award winning team • Area Expertise • Proven Success Jan Edlin 0274 338 025 Patricia van de Bent 0272 961 408 21 Humphreys Drive, Ferrymead Prier Manson Real Estate Ltd Licensed (REAA 2008) 20 Hours Free for 3 & 4 yrs old Three age specific rooms plus School prep Teaching room For full information please visit our website Come in for a visit and experience the difference Ph 03 384 9249 108 Port hills Rd, heathcote Valley Lyttelton Tunnel Ferrymead Heritage Park Port Hills Rd Tunnel Rd We are here Bridle Path Rd Martindales Rd
