Think Papanui’s curator Simon Britten rounds up stories from the past week:
Work is getting underway on the Main North Road bus priority project. This week I shared:
The Graham Condon Centre has closed for maintenance. The pools will reopen in April.
The Vinnies shop in Papanui reopened on Monday.
I shared the January newsletter from the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board.
The CNC Alliance has published a new fly-over video of the motorway project.
This afternoon, Go Cycle Christchurch held a cycle skills session for adults. See their Facebook page for future events.
The Council is consulting on options for managing home-share accommodation. There’ll be an information session in Papanui on the 12th of February.
Drilling equipment is on site at the Grassmere Pump Station, to drill a new deeper well as part of the Council’s work on the city water supply.
Plans for a revamp of the St Albans skate park are open for feedback from today through to 17 February.
Feedback is always welcome on Think Papanui’s content, either on Facebook or Instagram, or directly to me.
With warm regards
Plans for a revamp of the St Albans skate park are open for feedback from today through to 17 February. Beginner-friendly features are proposed to be added, with the total size nearly doubling. Click through for more information and an online feedback form. You can also meet staff to find out more and discuss the plans at tomorrow’s skate jam (12pm to 3pm Saturday 18 Jan).
St Albans skate park revamp
“It’s time to revitalise St Albans skate park and we want to know what you think works, what features are important to you and any suggestions you may have on the proposed design…”
Equipment is on site to enable the installation of a new deeper water supply well at the Grassmere Pump Station in Papanui. This is part of the Council’s ongoing work to upgrade the city’s water supply network. For more information see https://ccc.govt.nz/transport/works/show/324.
The Christchurch City Council is considering changes to the District Plan in relation to home-share accommodation (eg Airbnb etc). There appears to be widespread non-compliance with the current Plan, which requires a resource consent for whole unit listings (“only a handful” of hosts have applied for consent, despite an estimated 1600-plus listings requiring them). Click through to lean more, download a 32-page discussion paper, and see times for drop-in information sessions (there’s one in Papanui on 12 February). Feedback is due by the 2nd of March.
Home-share accommodation District Plan review
“We’re seeking feedback on potential changes to the Christchurch District Plan around managing home-share accommodation…”
Until 6:30pm today you can call in to the Papanui boardroom to see plans and talk to Council staff about the Main North Rd bus priority project.
This Friday 17 January at 4:30pm Go Cycle Christchurch will hold a free cycle skills session for adults at Northcote Primary School. See the Facebook event or the Go Cycle Christchurch page for more information.
