Hey Residents - we are enjoying having our community centre open on Saturdays! How about Sundays too? - can be done with some volunteer help - a fun way to do good, meet your neighbours, make new friends and enliven the city centre for its residents and others too.

For the last few months Ellen Melville Centre has been open on Saturdays which has been a huge success! We would now like to look at having the Lounge open on Sundays but we will need some help! It would be great if we had the lounge accessible for the community 7 days a week. If you are interested please let them know!

Have your say until 18 October on the City centre Access for Everyone proposal
- a Pedestrian priority vision. It will be great for residents in creating safe, more people-friendly streets, whilst still maintaining access for those who really need it.
Access for Everyone is a new idea to create more space in the city centre, responding to the needs of residents and our neighbourhoods.

The concept is based on reallocating street space in favour of people, operations and street functions and reorganising access to prioritise trips needed to support the city centre.
Benefits:
more attractive and inclusive city streets
more space for deliveries, servicing, construction and emergency services
better air quality
better public health from reduced pollution, lower traffic volumes.

Closure of More City centre Public Accessways by private Owners: 2 Emily Place

The public stairs between 2 Emily Place and 14 Emily place that join Emily Place with Beach Road, have been closed off, apparently by the owners of 2 Emily place, and replaced with an aggressive, hostile sign.
These stairs form a very popular and convenient access between Emily Place and beach Road.

This set of stairs, referred to as ‘through-site access’ was created via the
 operation of ‘bonus floor provisions’ of resource consents. This is a way for developers to increase the floor space of a private development by providing public access or public benefit from the change.
Sometimes we get toilets, sometimes art, sometimes paths and or stairs linking popular streets.

You can see more detail in Vernon Tava's excellent map : vernontava.com...

Please contact Council (link below or on Call us on 09 301 0101 ) and ask why these are being closed off. And request their re-opening.

These bonus floor arrangements are part of creating amenity for cities, and for residents who live here, are particularly useful and important. 
They provided building owners with  taller, bigger buildings in a contractual exchange that gives back to the city, and to residents.

Building owners who no longer want these amenities (even though though get to keep their extra floor space of course) come up with all sorts of made-up excuses to get rid of them, paying for 'experts' to back them up.
Slowly but surely all of our bonus floor provision amenities are being closed off.
