– “Christchurch’s The Palms Mall Buys Neighbouring Homes in Expansion Bid” By Tim Fulton | The Press | 11 January 2016
“On December 18 an independent panel hearing submissions on the city’s district plan approved zone changes allowing The Palms to expand its retail and carparking to the immediate north of the centre, and on the western side of Marshland Rd.”
“The council has also re-zoned other property around The Palms owned by AMP. That land can now be turned over into higher density, two to three-storey homes.
A council spokeswoman said that residential zone was a response to the Land Use Recovery Plan, which favoured people living more closely together around the city’s largest retail centres.
A block of 27 council flats, the Shirley library and service centre, and a Resene paint store separate The Palms from some of AMP Capital’s residential properties.”
– Could the Shirley Library and Service Centre be sold?
– Could the block of 27 Christchurch City Council flats be sold?
The map in the article/link below, shows the large ‘blue’ block to the north is ‘Residential owned property by AMP Capital’.
– These Christchurch City Council properties could be offered to AMP Capital or advertised for sale by tender or auction.
– The sale of these properties could be used to fund the Shirley Community Centre rebuild.

Papanui-Innes Community Board
– “Health Minister Jonathan Coleman and Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel officially launched the $6 million Community Resilience Partnership Fund in February.
Both the Government and the Christchurch City Council decided more than a year ago to contribute $1m each to the fund per financial year over three years.
The fund now has $4m in the kitty.
Mental health advocates and those working in the field are upset by the delay and have criticised the way the “lack of transparency” about how the money will be distributed.
No-one can apply for the money. Instead, council staff in conjunction with a Psychosocial Governance Group will identify community-led wellbeing projects “most likely to contribute to the outcomes sought”.
Projects would instead be identified by council staff in conjunction with the Psychosocial Governance Group, which was set up after the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes. The group oversees various programmes including the All Right? campaign.
Group members include the Canterbury District Health Board, Ngai Tahu, police, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet Greater Christchurch Group, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Social Development and the Selwyn and Waimakariri district councils.”

– “A group of residents who had formed the Pier and Foreshore Society to try to save the pier continued to campaign for a new pier (New Brighton Pier). Thirty years of lobbying and fundraising in the community saw almost $2 million raised from the community which was matched by a further $2 million from the Christchurch City Council and a new pier design was approved with a new library, a café and a restaurant at the landward end.”
