Council updates  |  17 Jan 2020

Christchurch City Council is holding its first meeting of the year on Thursday 23 January.

At the start of the meeting the Council will be presented a petition by Ashburton Mayor Neil Brown and Jason Alexander, whose teenaged daughters Tayla and Sunmara died as a result of a car accident on the Summit Road at the end of last year. The petition calls on the Council to take steps to make Summit Road safer. It also calls on the Government to make defensive driving course compulsory for all learner drivers.

The other main items on the agenda for the public part of the meeting are:

  • A report from the Multicultural Committee which recommends the Council adopt amended terms of reference for the Multicultural Advisory Group and expand its size.
  • A report which recommends the Council approve terms of reference for the External Advisory Group, which will provide advice on the development of the Long Term Plan 2021-31.
  • A report from the Mayor outlining the external activities she has undertook in her city and community leadership role during December.
  • A report updating Council on the progress being made on Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act compliance and practice.
