Consultation outcome: following community consultation in November/December last year, the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board has approved the revamp of the Bishopdale skate park. A number of changes were made to the design as a result of feedback from the public, and construction is expected to commence in February 2021.

Skate park upgrade on a roll in Bishopdale
A fresh edge will boost Bishopdale Park following the approval of a new-look skate park.
The Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board will meet this Friday 7 August at 9:15am in the Papanui boardroom. The agenda includes: a recommendation to approve a $40,000 rebuild of a planter box in Palm Drive (noting that there is no existing funding for this); the receipt of a road network safety analysis around Northlands Shopping Centre; and an area report on initiatives and issues current within the Community Board area. The meeting is open for the public to attend, and meetings are usually live streamed on the Board’s Facebook page. Click through for the full agenda:

Grimseys Rd subway closure, take two: the Grimseys Rd pedestrian/cycle subway will be closed tonight Sunday 2 August from 10pm until 4am for asphalting work. This had been planned for a couple of weeks ago but was rescheduled due to weather.
The Council’s guide to reducing waste has landed in Think Papanui’s letterbox. There’s information on what can go in the green, yellow, and red bins – if there is too much contamination in green & yellow bins, whole truckloads can be rejected and sent to landfill instead of being composted/recycled.

In 2019 the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board distributed $4,000 in ‘Summer with your neighbours’ funding to support over forty local events. Summer with your neighbours is back for 2020, and applications are now open until 6 September. This initiative started out as Neighbourhood Week by the then Shirley-Papanui Community Board in 1998 and has grown to be city-wide and extended through the whole summer.
