In Papanui this past week: 26 March 2021

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

Top post of the week was the release last Saturday of the design for Marian College’s new site in the former Foodstuffs warehouse in the back of the Main North Road / Northcote Road intersection.

Consultation has opened on the Council’s representation review, with some changes proposed to the boundaries of Papanui Ward and to the makeup of the Community Board.

On Monday I was at the Papanui Library for a drop-in information session on the draft Long Term Plan and other consultations currently open. This morning I also attended a busy session at MacFarlane’s on the Park Café.

New Zealand owned women’s wear retailer Caroline Eve is on the move in Papanui, with a new store at the Winston Ave / Main North Rd corner set to open today.

I’ve posted a summary of outcomes of the 17 March meeting of the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board.

Watch out for local road closures, as work gets underway on replacement of wastewater systems on a number of streets in the Papanui area.

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