Christchurch City Council is meeting at 9.30am on Thursday 11 June. The main items on the agenda for the public part of the meeting are:
At the start of the meeting the Council will receive a petition from the Greater Hornby Residents Association in relation to the Southwest Leisure Centre. The prayer of the petition reads:
Save the Hornby Pool & Library facility on Kyle Park, Don't Defer this long-awaited project, our Hornby community has waited far too long already for a pool, we NEED it NOW!
Hornby and the Southwest area have welcomed thousands upon thousands of quake refugees in recent years, we desperately need this facility in our community sooner rather than later! Don't take the easy option and make Hornby the scapegoat for all of Christchurch's COVID-19 savings, we have been overlooked for far too long, it is our turn now, please don't delay!
Too many generations of Hornby kids have missed out on learning the vital skills of water safety by not having a local pool facility, let’s not force anymore delays, please keep our pool on track toward completion!
Don't delay, continue toward delivering this much needed and long overdue facility as planned!
Members of the public are welcome to attend the Council meeting, which will be held in the Council Chamber on the second floor of the Civic Offices in Hereford Street. Alternatively you can watch the meeting on the live-stream.
