Land Drainage Recovery
Council has advised that, due to surface flooding caused by the recent wet weather, work on the new stormwater storage area in Sutherlands Basin is being postponed for a few months. Work will probably commence in October, with construction being complete in May 2019. More details can be found here.
Westmorland, Cracroft and Cashmere Resident’s Associations
The Port Hills fires, traffic congestion at Cashmere Road intersections and the establishment of the Adventure Park has shown the need for Resident’s Associations in adjacent areas to work closely together. WECCA is a meeting of the Associations and a chance to discuss issues of common interest such as fire safety, traffic issues and emergency preparedness.
So far resolutions that have been reached by conses include:
- Making a submission to the CCC Draft Annual Plan in favour of keeping Worsleys, Cashmere and Hoon Hay Road's intersection improvement in the coming 2017/2018 financial year.
- Asking the Council to produce a vegetation plan for the hills behind our residential areas including good fire breaks and plenty of green indigenous plants like flax that don’t burn easily.
