The 18-year-old Marian College student has been selected as Christchurch East’s Youth MP for the 2019 Youth Parliament. Youth Parliament is held every electoral term and is an opportunity for young people to get a first-hand experience of how Parliament operates. Teresa (right) said the opportunity is motivating for her to use her voice as a young female Pasifika. “Growing up as a minority I believe it is really empowering,” she said. Christchurch East MP Poto Williams said after approaching schools and several youth groups, Teresa was one of two candidates of the “highest calibre” recommended through Pacific Youth Leadership and Transformation. She said she interviewed Teresa about what she could do for the young people of the east and what she thought an opportunity like this would mean for her. •Turn to page 4 Accusation apology East apologises over District Plan tampering allegation Page 3 Page 5 Bridge returns The Medway St commemorative structure has been installed CITY 2 2SURF Sunday 24 March 2019 with Les Mills Speed limit lowered at Prestons subdivision • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE SPEED limit at Prestons subdivision will drop to 40km/h. It comes after the city council ruled against a joint community board’s decision to keep the Prestons subdivision speed limit at 50km/h. A recommendation was made by the Coastal-Burwood and Papanui-Innes Community Boards to keep the speed limit at 50km/h. It sparked conflict around the city council table on Thursday. A report from city council staff identified reducing the speed limit to 40km/h was appropriate. The city council’s report was generated to support the objectives of the NZTA Speed Management Guide 2016 and overall vision of Safer Journeys: Road Safety Strategy 2010-2020. Coastal-Burwood Community Board deputy chairman Tim Sintes said the surrounding area has four different speed limits and to make the speed limit 40km/h would be “another big change.” “Already the streets themselves tend to make people drive at a slower rate,” he said. “You have got to enforce it which could be a problem and the feeling was it was unnecessary.” •Turn to page 4 liquiD selF service lAunDromAts 345 Stanmore rd, richmond • 713 Ferry rd, WoolSton 261 BurWood rd, BurWood • 319 PageS rd, aranui All sites open 7 DAYs, 5Am-11pm WAsH 2 mink BlAnkets or Duvets For onlY $8 Hot WAter & extrA lArGe WAsHers AvAilABle Dry up to 14kg from $4 in only 25 minutes! save time & electricity WAsH & DrY All Your lAunDrY in unDer 1 Hour from $ 4.00 WASH $ 4.00 DRY • Fast Dryers • sports Gear • Duvets • mink Blankets • Bedding • Washers • Domestic laundry over 65 locations nationwide other locations: Sydenham • hornby • hoon hay • rangiora 1ST PLACE CLIENT EXPERIENCE AWARD HARCOURTS CANTERBURY 2017-2018 850m 4 2 850m 850m 4 4 2 2 1 1 2.5 2.5 850m 4 2 1 2.5
