Southern response have released an update on their geotechnical testing here.
Lincoln University are running an on-line survey to establish what residents consider to be important in the redevelopment of the Avon Residential Red Zone areas.
The survey is here.
The NZ Herald (here) has reported that forty Red Zoners applied today to the High Court for a judicial review of the Crown offers made to them. The particular circumstances of the case are that the people concerned either own bare land (and couldn’t get insurance) or were uninsured. They consider the amount offered by the Crown inadequate and inappropriate. They also consider Minister Brownlee did not engage with them over their concerns. Minister Brownlee and Roger Sutton were named in the statement of claim.
When asked for comment Minister Brownlee “…wouldn't comment because the matter is before the courts.” A very proper position for the minister to take.
While the review is before the court the question arises whether CERA will make further attempts to get these Red Zoners to take the existing offer, and get out of the Red Zone by the 31st of July. Would that be proper? Should they be left alone, in the Red Zone, until the review is completed, however long that takes?
Southern Response have updated their web page Who will I work with on my claim? here.
The text, as it now reads, is shown below with the additional text highlighted. It is interesting to also note that the page now shows both the date of publication and the date it was updated. This is a welcome step in coming to grips with how information is evolving (thanks folks).
