Christchurch’s city centre is awash with “dirty, dusty, gravel pits” and the council has had enough.
About 120 car parks within the four avenues are potentially operating without the necessary consent, stifling the city’s revitalisation.
The Christchurch City Council will this month send letters to owners of those sites, giving them 90 days to either cease their operations or apply for and be granted a resource consent.
If they fail to do so, the council could issue owners with a $300 fine and issue an abatement notice to cease the activity. Owners who ignore the notice could face court action. Read more here.
