Christchurch Hospital car park plan to be released 'very soon' - Megan Woods

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

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?

Almost $500,000 from Christchurch Cave Rock apartments sale sitting in limbo

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

A dispute over vandalism and flooding damage means nearly $500,000 has been withheld from the sale of Christchurch's Cave Rock apartments.

The Sumner complex’s new owners say the sellers neglected to keep the property secure after an agreement was reached but before settlement was made. They claim the damage has forced them to change their plans for the site, including demolishing part of the complex they had planned to repair.

Some former owners claim the buildings were already badly damaged before the “as is, where is” agreement was made, and dispute they are liable for any of the claimed damage. They are frustrated an independent lawyer holding $480,000 of the sale price will not release any of it until all sellers reach an agreement with the buyers.
