Busy meeting for Woodend Sefton Community Board

Published: 28-May-2018

The Woodend-Sefton Community Board had an interesting meeting on Monday 12 March with two main items on the agenda including a workshop on landscaping and a presentation on the proposed multi-use sports facility.

The workshop on landscaping provided the Board the opportunity to hear the options available and do some planning around future landscaping development in the area. 20180313 - Pegasus Lake  View

The presentation on the proposed multi-use sports facility from the North Canterbury Sports and Recreation Trust was informative and very timely as the Board will be considering its’ feedback to the draft plan soon.

The Board also agreed to appoint Andrew Thompson as their representative to the Northern Pegasus Bay Advisory Group.  This advisory group and their work to oversee the implementation plan supporting the bylaw is very important to the Board and the wider community.

The Board decided to provide $300 in funding to support the Annual Art Expo and Schools Art Expo coming up later this year, run by Waimakariri Arts Trust.  This funding will be put toward promotional advertising in the North Canterbury News and the provision of musical entertainment. 

This financial support was provided from the Board’s discretionary funding and Shona Powell, Board Chair person says “The Board just really want to encourage more community groups and organisations to apply to this fund.  This funding is designed to support local community events and initiatives and we hope that more people access this funding option”.

In supporting community engagement around the draft Long-Term Plan, the Board are pleased to be hosting two events in their community area.  This includes an information stand at the Community Cuppa event in the Pegasus Community Centre tomorrow from 10.15am til noon.  Later this month the Board will be with local Council staff at the Easter Eggstravaganza on Sunday 25 March at Pegasus Bay School between 11am and 2pm.
