Cowlishaw Street – School Traffic and Parking

As has been discussed at recent meetings the problems of school traffic and parking are increasing. This does not bode well for 2011 and beyond when work is being done to remediate land and repair or rebuild houses.

Gail and Sharyn will be visiting houses in the street later this morning with a petition to the Council on this issue.

Any questions or whatever please give Gail a ring or e-mail me at this e-mail address.

Roading and Street Improvements

The CCC has an Infrastrucure FAQ that addresses a number of issues. It doesn’t contain a great deal of specific information but is a starting point. One question that provides an important possibility for the future regards roading design (think peak traffic, road use, and parking).

Q. Can local communities have a say in how the area and roading will look like or will it have to be exactly as it was before? Can we take the opportunity to improve the area and will there be consultation around that?
A. Yes the negotiations with contractors are underway so work can be started. There will be some consultation with residents prior to streets being repaired.

The FAQ is available  here:

Unfortunately the document is undated and doesn’t have a review date so its ongoing relevance can’t be assessed.
