Recap: the week ended 13 September

Think Papanui’s curator Simon Britten rounds up stories from the past week:

A joint meeting of the Papanui-Innes and Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Boards heard submissions on Monday on the Council’s proposed transport projects downstream of the Christchurch Northern Corridor. A follow-up meeting was held on Friday afternoon to continue discussions. Keep an eye on Think Papanui for an update on the outcome.

There was another community weeding day at Papanui Bush on Tuesday this week.

On Tuesday evening, Papanui Councillor Mike Davidson was one of the invited speakers at a ‘meet the candidates’ event focused on transport, emissions, and the uptake of electric vehicles.

I posted a summary of the agenda for Friday’s meeting of the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board. I’ll post about outcomes once minutes are available.

Redwood Library’s repairs are progressing. I’ll share any updates I receive regarding a revised reopening date.

I posted an item in the lead-up to Thursday’s Council meeting, and another afterwards, on the agenda item relating to the Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection. The Council has voted to support lights, and to ask staff to investigate funding options. News of the outcome was Think Papanui’s top post of the week.

Coming up:

Feedback is always welcome on Think Papanui’s content, either on Facebook or Instagram, or directly to me.
With warm regards
Simon Britten
