Safety concerns behind proposal for more parking at busy North Canterbury retail complex

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A lack of adequate parking at North Canterbury's Mandeville Village retail complex could soon be fixed.

The first option is to occupy the adjacent reserve northwest of the shopping complex, with an entrance and exit off Mandeville Rd.

The second option is to establish parking further away, on the reserve across McHughs Rd. The same Reserves Act change would apply and it would provide 34 spaces.

The third option is to work with developers to create a car park on private land.

You can find out more about the proposals by reading the full story here and submit your feedback to the council here.

Councillor childcare costs will be covered by the Waimakariri District Council

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

The Waimakariri District Council will pay for childcare costs incurred by elected members up to $6000 per child, per year – uncapped.

In the proposal document, it stated there were concerns a lack of financial support for childcare created a "barrier for people, in particular women, to enter elected positions in local government".

The allowance was introduced by the Remuneration Authority last year, but the decision to adopt it was left up to individual councils to decide.
