CCBA News - 23 February

From All Black tests and Football World Cup qualifiers to big concerts and events, the Canterbury Multi-Use Arena (Arena) will be able to host them all. Our state-of-the-art Arena will add to the central city’s vitality, catalyse further development, enhance the region’s sporting and cultural identity and reputation as a nursery for sporting talent, and boost the city’s economy by attracting visitors from around New Zealand and the world.

As part of the work to construct the Arena, the Council needs to consider how this venue should integrate with the surrounding area, and the residents and businesses that are currently there (and will be there in the future). They also need to consider how the Arena can achieve the outcomes we need for our city’s economy and growth.

They also have to plan for the impacts of the Arena – specifically, how noise can be managed. You can check out what they are proposing and have your say by clicking HERE

The CCBA will be submitting on this issue so if you did not want to make your own submission send me your thoughts by this Friday and we will incorporate these into ours.

Due to the change in alert levels, the Council had to postpone the drop-in session that they had planned for Tuesday 16 February. So if you would like to find out more information you can go along to the drop-in session tonight!

When: Anytime between 4.30pm and 6.30pm today

At: The Christchurch Transitional Cathedral, 234 Hereford Street
