Last Meeting this Term

Published: 12-Sep-2019

It was the last meeting of this term for the Woodend Sefton Community Board on Monday night, most of which was spent advocating for and providing support to local communities.

The Board were delighted to approve two funding applications from community groups. They awarded $400 to the Sefton Community Group towards costs of the annual Carols in the Domain event. This is a family focussed fun event leading up to Christmas which many Board members have enjoyed attending.20190912 - Woodend Road Safety

The Board also awarded North Canterbury Neighbourhood Support $500 towards a large branded gazebo to be used at community family picnic events to be held over summer months. The Board felt this was worthwhile as it will get a lot of use at events.

The Board has been busy providing feedback on consultations that have an impact on their communities. These include the updated proposals for the Waimakariri Bus Service Review run by Environment Canterbury (ECan) and the SH1 Safety Improvements and Safer Speeds Reviews through NZTA.

Shona Powell, Board Chair said “It was great to see many people responding to these consultations in writing or at the drop in sessions, and rightly so, as they affect our day-to-day life”.

The Board will be holding another workshop shortly to prepare feedback on open consultations to review both the Signage Bylaw and Parking Bylaw. We encourage the public to share their views too and you can find out more here.

This was the final meeting for the 2016-2019 term. The new Board will be sworn into office late October 2019, with meetings starting mid-November 2019.
