able to stay

LONG-TERM Kairaki Beach
Motor Camp residents will be able
to stay in the camp when it is re-
a new plan is adopted by the
Waimakariri District Council.
The Kaiapoi Community Board
has approved the plan and recom-
mended council adopt it.
Long-term residents with
permanent properties have exi-
sted outside camping ground
regulations at the site for many
years. However, the need to re-
locate the camp because of earth-
quake damage has highlighted
their illegal status.
The motor camp working
party s plan for a new area on the
higher part of the camp would
accommodate 40 new sites -- 25 of
which would be for relocatable
homes. Under the camping
ground s legislation some struc-
tures (relocatables) in a camp can
be occupied permanently, as long
as they have a building consent
and have foundation piles.
Long-term residents who want
to move to one of the new reloca-
table sites would need to a obtain
a building consent and pay for
foundation piles to be tied in to
structures on the site.
Council property manager Gary
Saunders said he thought this
could cost about $3000. He said
the plan was good for long-term
residents, as it allowed them to
stay at the camp legally.
Kaiapoi councillor Neville
Atkinson said the plan was a win-
This move is an opportunity to
accommodate these people. It s a
way to bring everything into line
so we match up with legislation,
to accommodate people who
deservedly live where they live
through their choices, and I think
it s a win win for everybody.
The first plan, for two sites at
a cost of $1.5 million, was
deemed too expensive by the
The single site solution would
cost an estimated $1 million, and
if approved by the council, work
could start at the end of this year.
Costs included major earth-
works and infrastructure develop-
ment, a new amenity block with
toilets, a kitchen area, and
laundry, as well as landscaping.
Fair has storybook ending
OFF THE PAGE: Favourite story books sprang to life at Kaiapoi's St Patrick's School last week, with a five-day Scholastic Book
Fair to earn new titles for the library culminating in a costume day on Friday. Pupils and teachers came to school dressed up as
their favourite fictional characters -- the principal put in an appearance as Snow White -- and rounded out the celebrations with
a parade for parents. Other high points included the teachers reading to different classes each day and a visit from Rangiora author
Rangiora gets to hear about
planning for its health hub
By CATE BROUGHTON
PLANS FOR a health hub in
Rangiora will be revealed at a public
Canterbury District Health Board
chief executive David Meates will
visit Rangiora to provide an update
on progress towards the proposed
The meeting is at the Rangiora Golf
Club, Golf Links Rd, at 9am.
A health board spokesman said the
meeting will go for about two hours,
including a 45-minute presentation
from Mr Meates.
The board s announcement in
September last year confirming a
health hub would be located in
Rangiora was met with praise, par-
ticularly from those living in the
southern part of the region.
However, details on service pro-
vision -- including 24-hour services --
had not been finalised.
Board planning and funding man-
ager Carolyn Gullery said the public
meeting was an important part of the
board s engagement with local people
and was open to everyone.
The plan for the meeting is
to update people on progress in
planning, but it is important that
the meeting is a two-way dialogue,
and there will be plenty of oppor-
tunity for people to ask questions and
get a response.
Mr Meates will make an initial
presentation including an outline of
what is being considered in terms of
site selection and the provision of
after-hours care, and one or more
concept designs, Ms Gullery said.
The meeting would be repeated in a
month s time to maximise the oppor-
tunities people have to find out more
and contribute their thoughts and
ideas , she said.
