Central city plan day 7 #eqnz #Chch

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sue Wells @ 6:04 pm

Central City Plan day 7 moves into its final session – another 11 hour day.
A diverse set of submitters again. Surveyors, the institute of forestry, circus professionals, the Arts Centre, the Anglican Diocese, Foodstuffs, the Canterbury Embroiderers’ Guild, monorails, monorails, trains and more monorails, property owners, the Property Council, the CDC, local residents – the list goes on and on.
I’m tired today. Last night’s 5.5 rattled me badly, only the 4th cluster to have caused my car alarm to go off. Another shake woke me at 430, having got to bed at 1am (lots of paperwork) and sleep remained elusive after that.
I was very grateful to today’s after lunch speakers who were truly inspirational.
They spoke to us about indigineity and the importance of the opportunity we have to express who we are as we shape where we are.
We were told by some submitters that we hadn’t consulted at all and thanked lavishly by others for doing it so well.
Tomorrow we have a council workshop in the morning, a meeting in the afternoon. Wednesday I have CCHL in the morning, our hearing concludes that afternoon, and Thursday is our regular council day – I’m tempted to bring my sleeping bag:)
Yes, still listening, and still getting lots of good ideas. We have 11 volumes of “unheard” submissions to read – 1am could become the new 7.30 🙂
