GREAT LS SPEEACT MIA UM THIS TO TR MOTHER’S DAY!

The Island Bay Residents’ Association held its most recent meeting on Monday evening at the Island Bay Bowling Club. Acting spokesman for the residents association, Warren Hall, said around 40 people attended and noted meetings continued to be well attended. At Monday’s meeting, a spokesman for Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office spoke to residents about upcoming ‘Disaster Response Plan’ workshops. “They are planned for Island Bay, Owhiro Bay and Houghton Bay all combined. It’s about putting a plan in place for helping each other after earthquakes and looking at how we can

strengthen and build resilience. “We are planning to be completely engaged in these meetings because it’s an excellent idea.” The Island Bay cycleway was also discussed at Monday’s meeting. Warren said there had been wide support and acknowledgment from the council and councillors that the consultation process had fallen flat. “We are now working with some councillors on a notice of motion. We are asking for the council to develop at least three alternative designs for a cycleway from Shorland Park to Dee St that has vehicle parking at the kerbside. It is a work in

progress.” Warren said the association was also asked to consult with councillors and council officers in regards to its animal bylaw and dog policy. He said submissions for the council’s annual plan were also coming up and encouraged locals to have their say. “We encourage people to make a submission or send them to us and we can make them on residents’ behalf.” As well as this the association was working on installing a noticeboard and suggestion box at the Island Bay village. “It’s another way for us to engage with the community,” Warren said.
