The following are extracts from the media release:
The village will comprise a mix of two, three and four bedroom units. Portable homes will be fully serviced just like any other normal residential neighbourhood.
Mr Bywater says some sports and training grounds will be affected. “Building temporary villages is an extraordinary measure which has had to be taken as a result of the earthquake and Christchurch City Council is arranging alternative locations where necessary.”
He says care has been taken during planning for the village to ensure that residents and park users will have easy access to the rest of the park.The council's full media release is here.
