A knock on the door proved to be a reporter and photographer from RNZ National. This morning’s ‘Press’ told us that Regenerate Christchurch expect to have a draft plan for the Avon Loop area by the end of this year. RNZ wanted comment from a local, had been told that my landline was dead, so they came calling. We walked round to the beginning of the red zone where they interviewed me (as Chairperson of the Avon Loop Planning Association), and took a photo. I asked when it might be broadcast and was told it would be on ‘Checkpoint’ this evening.
Later I contacted our Association Secretary to alert her to the possibility of Checkpoint, and she told me I had featured on the 1pm News. It hadn’t occurred to me to listen, but I did catch the 3pm News, and heard my name mentioned. I was also briefly on ‘Checkpoint’, and people have told me they heard it. We now just await some word from Regenerate Christchurch.
“They say a plan there soon will be
let’s hope they consult you and me.”
