How your community board works for you Community boards were created by the local government reforms in 1989. Approximately 108 community boards now operate in both urban and rural areas within local authorities throughout New Zealand. They carry out functions and exercise those powers delegated to them by their councils. Local body elections for community board members and councillors are held every three years.

the implementation of safety measures across the city.

Signalised intersection - Harewood/ Breens The board continues to receive deputations and requests from residents regarding the safety of this intersection. There are a number of primary and pre-schools in the vicinity who have equally expressed their ongoing concerns to the board and this topic dominated community engagement around this year’s Annual Plan. The board requested the council to urgently investigate the installation of traffic signals at this intersection and consider the safety of vehicle and pedestrian users by setting aside sufficient funds in 2017/18 with a view to introducing signalisation as soon as possible.

Right Turn Arrows - Heaton/ Glandovey/Rossal/Strowan intersection This is one of the most used intersections in the ward and has had increasing traffic in recent years due to changes in the road network in the surrounding areas. Many near misses occur daily and are observed due to jumping/running the red light for right-turning traffic. The carriageway width would appear sufficient for a realignment to enable a dedicated Right Turn Arrow(s) to be installed.

Regeneration of Bishopdale Mall The board is working with Development Christchurch Limited and Council’s Urban Regeneration Team on the issues

Condition of local waterways Particularly the Waimairi, Wai-iti and Otakaikino Streams. The board requested funding and support for the maintenance and pro-active management of streams and rivers that are negatively impacted by lack of flow, silting of the streams/river beds and eroding of properties by stream bank collapses during heavy rain. The board has received deputations from concerned residents and the Waimairi Stream Action Group and has been working with council and Ecan staff on possible solutions.
