SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Wednesday May152019 7 News Green light for Rolleston Limes • By Anan Zaki Pat McEvedy LIME SCOOTERS will be trialled for six months in Rolleston once niggling issues are worked through. District councillors voted to allow the trial when Lime has worked with council staff on issues of speed, costs, geofencing, public education and potential bylaw impacts. The proposal is to introduce 200 scooters in Rolleston. Presentation and debate on the shared electric scooter network – which lasted more than an hour – included accusations of predetermination. Councillors voted eight to three in favour of looking at a trial period. A commence date for the trial will be known once safety and other issues are worked through by Lime and district council staff. Said Councillor Pat McEvedy: “I have major concerns around safety. I really do.” Lime said its scooters are geofenced on its smartphone app – meaning it has the ability to block users from locking scooters and to slow it down. But Lime said it cannot stop a scooter from ON THE WAY: Lime Scooters are set to have a trial in Rolleston. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER exiting the geo-fence. Cr McEvedy said the geo-fencing was “average” and needed to be looked at. “I’m not against Lime Scooters, I’m against Lime Scooters at this time.” There was also danger in the scooters being ridden on open highways, Cr McEvedy said. In deputations presented to the meeting, Christchurch City Councillor Deon Swiggs –representing himself – also made a submission in favour of the scooters. During the debate, Councillor Mark Alexander HOW COUNCILLORS VOTED: • For: Crs Hasson, Bland, Morten, Lyall, Miller, Watson, Lemon and Mayor Sam Broughton. •Against: Crs McEvedy, Reid, Mugford tried to stop Councillor Craig Watson from voting on the subject due to a Facebook post. Cr Watson wrote on Facebook, saying: “I want to be very clear, I will be voting against the staff recommendation unless considerable detail is presented the council meeting on Wednesday.” Said Cr Alexander: “A councillor has already by his public statements indicated that he has predetermined his point of view on this issue.” “He [Cr Watson] should be excluded on the basis of predetermination.” In response to Cr Alexander’s allegation, Mayor Sam Broughton asked Cr Watson if he was present at the meeting with an open mind. Cr Watson told Mr Broughton that he “absolutely” had an open mind. Mr Broughton said he was satisfied with Cr Watson voting. The trial will make Rolleston the fifth place in the country to allow the scooters. Local News Now Fire rages, homes at risk Information sessions over quarry FULTON HOGAN is setting up a pop-up information desk about its contentious quarry plans near Templeton. The information desk will be open tomorrow at the Templeton RSA on Kirk Rd, from noon-2pm, with another session from 5-7pm.
