Work will be underway from May to September in Tuckers Road to install a new water main and sub-mains, as the existing pipework has reached the end of its useful life. If you’re moving through the area keep an eye out for changed conditions, as the road will be one-way much of the time, and there will be some closures. See this works notice for more information.
A reminder that due to ANZAC Day, all kerbside collections from Tuesday onwards will be a day later than usual this week, eg if you normally put your bins out for Friday collection, this week they’ll be emptied on Saturday.
The location of the Christchurch Northern Community Market has changed slightly within the Redwood Hotel Grounds to behind the Liquorland (off Prestons Road), with plenty of parking next to the market.
With the Autumn/Winter season upon us the hours have changed to 10am to 1pm.
The Waipapa/Papanui-Innes-Central Community Board will meet this Thursday 13 April at 4pm in the Papanui boardroom.

Community organisations have until 14 April to apply to the Council for support through the Strengthening Communities Fund. This fund supports community-focused organisations whose projects contribute to the strengthening of community wellbeing in the Christchurch city area.
Applications can be for operating costs such as salaries, power, rent, and administration, and/or for project costs such as community programmes, events, activities and equipment.
Over the next month you may see an increase in resurfacing activity on the city’s roads, in particular in the east, central city, and northwest. Click through for more information on the Council’s road resurfacing programme:
