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.

Woodend misses out on Government's roading funds

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

The Woodend community has been bypassed in the Government's $5.3 billion roading announcement.

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey, who has been spear-heading a campaign for a highway around the North Canterbury town, said it was hugely disappointing North Canterbury had been entirely missed out.

The lion's share of the money will go to the North Island, with Auckland alone set to receive $3.4b. In contrast, Canterbury will get just $159 million – all of which has been allocated either in Christchurch or further south.

Doocey has organised a rally for the bypass at Woodend's Owen Stalker Park at 12.30pm on February 9.
