Sumner Lyttelton Corridor Update 


Following the Canterbury Earthquakes, the Sumner – Lyttelton road Corridor was affected by rock fall, cliff collapse and landslides, resulting in the placement of shipping containers to provide interim protection to road users. As part of the works to mitigate these risks the Christchurch City Council sought resource consents for works to the following areas of the corridor.


*Wakefield Avenue


* Moa Bone Point


* Shag Rock Reserve, Including Clifton and Deans Head



Alisdair Hutchison and Darrell Latham have attended council meetings and  prepared submissions on behalf of the Sumner Community Residents Association (SCRA) relating to Wakefield Avenue, Shag Rock Reserve, Including Clifton and Deans Head. The initial submission process involves production of a detailed  report related to points of concern. When consents are issued  we have also taken the opportunity to respond to the proposed conditions on behalf of SCRA.  Aspects of design, the consultation timeline, impacts of construction, bund location, landscaping, fencing, mitigation measures and footpaths / coastal pathway have featured prominently in the SCRA submissions. SCRA have requested  inspection copies of approvals and construction plans to be located in the Hub. This will enable residents to view plans.
