Christchurch City Council met today to consider a full agenda and will resume tomorrow at 10am
Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker says the Council wanted to make a number of key decisions before the Christmas break.
“We also spent some hours today hearing from the community on key issues before decisions were made. This is an important step in the process as we want to make sure residents and interest groups have the opportunity to tell us what they think about the issues and inform our decision-making.”
The meeting closed at 5pm today and will resume at 10am tomorrow (Friday 7 December).
Key decisions made today are outlined below; further information will be available after decisions are made on agenda items considered tomorrow.
Canterbury Cricket’s resource consent application to redevelop Hagley Oval has been referred directly to the Environment Court by the Christchurch City Council. If the resource consent is granted, the matter will come back to the Council to consider whether to grant a lease to Canterbury Cricket.
