Poll: Covid-19: Should scanning be mandatory at pubs, clubs, restaurants, etc?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

A leading coronavirus expert is calling on the Government to make scanning at potential “super-spreader” venues, such as bars and nightclubs, mandatory amid continued low use of the Covid-19 Tracer app.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.

Do you think scanning should be mandatory at pubs, nightclubs, etc?

More parking, new community hubs key projects for Waimakariri District Council

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

The Waimakariri District Council has proposed constructing a parking building in Rangiora and new community centres in Ravenswood and Pegasus as the district’s population continues to grow.

The council’s previous long-term plan included $6.3 million to buy more land and facilities for car parking, but that was no longer expected to be enough to meet the expected demand. It is proposing to spend another $11.3m in 2028-30 to build a car park building with between 180 and 280 spaces.

The council has also proposed spending $4.7m for land in Pegasus to build a community centre within two to four years.

Another $4.3m was proposed for land at Ravenswood for a swimming pool. Construction of a community centre in Ravenswood would get under way in 2029-30.
