Lyttelton's Civic Square
Suburban Centres Programme - Creating a civic square for Lyttelton together
During development of the Lyttelton Master Plan the Lyttelton community asked for a civic square.
The Lyttelton/Mt Herbert Community Board, the community and the Council have been working together to develop the permanent design for Lyttelton's civic square.
Draft design concepts have now been developed by the Council's Project Team on the basis of the community's input so far.
We now want your final feedback on the two concepts to find out your preferred design for the civic square.
You can access the draft design concepts and submission forms from Monday 10 June 2013:
- Online at www.ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay/
- In hard copy at
.Lyttelton Library (18 Canterbury Street)

Your submission is needed by the Council before 5pm on Monday, 1 July 2013.
Come along to the following drop-in sessions to view the draft design concepts and make a submission.

Consultation on draft Local Alcohol Policy
The community's chance to give feedback on the Christchurch City Council's draft Local Alcohol Policy (LAP) begins Friday 31 May.
The draft policy, which is a provision of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, was adopted by the full Council earlier this month and consultation will run until 5pm on Monday 1 July. The aim of the draft LAP is to minimise alcohol related harm in the city and ensure that the sale, supply and consumption of alcohol is undertaken safely and responsibly.
A whole of Council committee, chaired by Councillor Sue Wells, will hear and consider submissions, then deliberate and decide on the draft LAP during July and August 2013. The provisional LAP will then be publicly notified in early 2014 and open to appeals. Final adoption of a LAP is not likely to be until mid to late 2014, depending on the length of the appeal process.
Provisions in the draft include:
* A closing time of 3am in the Central City Entertainment Precincts (excluding Victoria Street) for taverns, bars, pubs, night-clubs and clubs, with a one-way door policy from 1am.
* A closing time of 1am elsewhere in the Central City (including Victoria Street) for taverns, bars, pubs, night-clubs and clubs, with a discretionary one-way door policy where appropriate.
* A closing time of 1am in suburban centres in the city for taverns, bars, pubs, night-clubs and clubs, with a discretionary one-way door policy where appropriate.
* Maximum trading hours for selling alcohol of 9am until 9pm for all off-licences in Christchurch.
* Restrictions on the location of new bottle stores and taverns to business zones.
As part of the consultation process, there will be three public information sessions held where people can find out in more detail how the draft LAP was developed, what is proposed in it and how to make a submission. The sessions will start with a short presentation and will be held on:
Date: Tuesday 11 June, noon-1.30pm
Location: CPIT Marae - Te Puna Wanaka, Coventry Street, Christchurch
Date: Wednesday 12 June, 6pm-7.30pm
Location: North City Church, 95a Sawyers Arms Road, Christchurch
Date: Thursday 13 June, 6pm-7.30pm
Location: Cashmere Club, 50 Colombo Street, Christchurch
Drop-in sessions at shopping malls and other community activities
Council staff will also be on hand at some Christchurch shopping malls during the consultation period to answer any questions about the draft LAP and give out information on making a submission. They will also attend many other community events such as farmer's markets and speak at various community network meetings.
A submission form and project information can be found online at www.ccc.govt.nz/HaveYourSay or at any open Council library or service centre.
Free Materials service available across Canterbury
A free online service being launched throughout Canterbury is helping businesses, schools and other organisations reduce waste disposal costs while providing materials for others to use at no charge.
The service works by enabling businesses, schools or other organisations to register as suppliers or collectors of goods. Participants that make available reusable materials they no longer have a use for can avoid the cost of sending these materials to landfill by offering them free to organisations that have a need for them.

Fresh Local Organic Milk - Interested?
Hi, I'm a local and I want to farm cows to sell raw milk to the local community and I need your help. I am totally committed to resilient communities and for me that means, local nutritious food, strong community culture and a healthy vibrant ecosystem.
This means that I will be growing to biodynamic organic standards, that the cattle I work with will be in a healthy and stress free environment and that the milk will be of the best quality we can produce. It also means that I will be actively seeking opportunities to help develop a connection between people and land and a local food culture.
Requesting Expressions of Interest
I need to find out if there is community support for this before I go ahead. If you would be interested in purchasing a weekly amount of raw milk (estimated cost $3/litre) please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
