Plans for a new car park near Christchurch Hospital are “pretty much there”, Canterbury Regeneration Minister Megan Woods has promised.
Woods made the comment on Twitter on Thursday evening in response to a complaint from a member of the public about Christchurch’s lack of hospital parking.
"Please be assured that we understand just how much of a problem the lack of a carpark is. I have been working on the details of a solution that's pretty much there - more to say very soon," she wrote.
Has the lack of hospital parking been a problem for you? Where do you think a new parking building or site should go?
In a bid to overturn a scathing approval rating, Christchurch City Council is making moves to create a new residents’ forum.
The council says it wants people to feel they are being listened to and their views are respected. It also wants more people to trust the council’s decision-making process.
In May, the council released its annual residents’ survey, showing just half of the city’s residents were satisfied with the services it provided – down from 62 per cent last year.
Some 23 per cent of respondents were dissatisfied with council's performance and 27 per cent were neutral. It is the lowest result since 2007, when the question was first asked as part of the survey.
How do you feel about the council's performance? And will a new forum help? Give us your thoughts below.
