Welcome

Welcome, I created this website to collate my research and ideas for my submission to the Christchurch City Council 2018 Long Term Plan, for the rebuild of the Shirley Community Centre, 10 Shirley Road, Christchurch.

“Are you saying that rather than just building back a community centre, that actually we should look at the whole of the area, and look at the whole of the needs.
So maybe what we need to be considering for the Long Term Plan is a budget that would enable a full needs analysis, and to look at what the different options are.”
Mayor Lianne Dalziel – 12th May 2018

Since my verbal submission to the Christchurch City Council’s 2018 Long Term Plan, for the rebuild of the Shirley Community Centre, 10 Shirley Road, to create a multi-cultural centre as a “Gateway to the East.”
I have looked around at our Richmond suburb, and have created a new website: https://www.riseuprichmond.nz/.
