Proposed road layout options for the Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC) are back on the agenda for the Papanui-Innes Community Board. At the 20 June meeting, the board deferred any decision on CNC road layout options, in order to first receive further information from staff. This Wednesday 4 July at 4pm the Board will hold an extraordinary meeting, with the same report and proposals back on the agenda. Click through for full details:
The Papanui ward forms part of the Christchurch North constituency in the represntation arrangements being proposed by the Canterbury Regional Council (ECan). Background: since the 2016 election ECan has had a mix of elected and appointed members, but from 2019 will return to a fully democratically elected Council. You can make a submission on ECan’s proposal online, you can post or hand deliver a submission form, or send an email. Further information and an online submission form can be found at the link below. Submissions close at 4pm on Monday 30 July 2018. https://haveyoursay.ecan.govt.nz/representation-review
Have you noticed this in Papanui? The car park behind the library / service centre is now a hub for a service offering bookable shared electric vehicles.
The new Winters Road subway for cyclists and pedestrians is expected to open on Monday 2 July. Around the same time, the cycle/pedestrian pathway along QEII Drive will be diverted through the subway to enable further construction on the QEII Drive / CNC interchange.
More than 400 submissions were made in response to proposed options for dealing with increased traffic south of Innes Rd due to the Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC) project. There will be an opportunity for submitters to speak to the Papanui-Innes Community Board later this year, and the Council advises that there will be further consultation on each of the individual projects included in the Downstream Effects Management Plan before any work gets under way.

Minutes from the 20 June meeting of the Papanui-Innes Community Board are now available. As reported in a previous post, decisions at this meeting included: approval of the proposal to drop the speed limit on the top part of Cranford St (and part of Main North Road) to 50km/h; approval of three applications to the Board’s Positive Youth Development Fund; a discretionary grant to the Papanui RSA; and deferral of any decision on the final design for the sections of the Christchurch Northern Corridor that the Council is responsible for.

Yesterday 21 June the Environment Canterbury Council (ECan) adopted the Council’s Long-Term Plan 2018-28, which includes the modified proposals for Christchurch bus routes as outlined in the link below. For the Papanui area, this confirms that the 107 service will be retained (but with reduced frequency and operating hours), and the 108 will be mostly absorbed into an extended 28 service. The original proposal was to discontinue six bus routes, including the 107 & 108, with no replacements or alternative, and this was met with a massive pushback from the public. The outcome is a positive result for people power and the impact that ratepayers can have 🙂 Changes are likely to be implemented from early October 2018.

Christchurch City Council is meeting today to make important decisions about its budget and how it will manage the challenges and opportunities the city faces over the next 10 years.
Updates from today’s meeting of the Papanui-Innes Community Board:
At thismorning’s Papanui Innes Community Board meeting we decided to recommend to the full council that the speed limit on the northern stretch of Cranford St and Main North Rd through to the Northcote/Main North/QEII Dr intersection be dropped from 60km/hr to 50km/hr, and we approved the no stopping restrictions on Grants Rd by Proctor St.
We also decided to delay making a decision on the report around the final design for the Northern Arterial Extension, the northern part of the Cranford St Upgrage (the section between McFaddens Rd north to the Northern Arterial Junction) and the Cranford-Innes intersection. We felt unable to make a decision without having more clarification from staff around parts of the proposal, and will be getting our questions answered before we consider it again at a later date.
In other decisions, we granted funding to the three young people who had requested it from our positive youth development fund, and also granted funds to the Papanui RSA for their new memorabilia cabinets.
Let me know if you’ve got any questions.
