Canvas

The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) led a public engagement process called Canvas from July to September 2014. Over 300 people provided their ideas and comments during Canvas for the future use of the red zone land in Kaiapoi, Pines Beach and Kairaki. You can read more in the Canvas Summary Report (released in December 2014).

Here are the comments that were received during Canvas:

A bike park (like the westburn bike park)

People are coming up with some great ideas but they also need to remember that there are people living adjacent to the red zones (in the green zones) and any plans will impact on them. So please people remember the poor green zoned residents when you come up with your ideas. They have already had to put up with so much for almost 4 years just trying to access their properties. I think that this should be mentioned on this website. I note even above the comments box it says " think about the red zone ..." . The adjacent green zones also need to be taken into consideration.

Great comment! My property happens to be"Green Zoned" and on the edge in Pines Beach and therefore stand to be heavily impacted by any developments. True, there are many great Ideas, however those that have made these suggestions and even more so those from further afield, will in no way bear the consequences of such developments. Any Developments should only happen with the total agreement of the effected parties, especially where there is a commercial element involved.

Agreed living at green part of a red street! we are still living thru it, be considerate please

Thankyou for making this very important comment. For 4 years we have been impacted on by earthquakes, demolitions, tree clearing and rebuild of Council infrastructure. It would be great if we could have 4 years of peace and quiet with a tranquil, well maintained green outlook.

I want to see trams going around the whole of Waimakariri and maybe even trams going to Christchurch from Kaiapoi and Rangiora.

-large open picnic areas
-9 hole free golf course
-doggy area

If one can build on Beach Road, Kaiapoi (prone to terrible flooding, and liquifaction) then one must be able to rebuild in the Kaiapoi North Red Zone... it is currently Residential 2...it should stay as residential 2...the small pockets where historic riverbeds existed... can be turned into Food forests or parks to service the new subdivision...
The land is too valuable due to proximity to the town centre ...

I don't know Beach Road or the Kaiapoi red zone well, but I do agree with your comment. There are pockets of the red zone that should not have been red zoned, where the land is TC3 quality, as shown on CERA maps, and often good quality TC3 at that. It will be hurtful to those of us that had to leave our undamaged houses and land to see it built on again, but I think what we all want is to see our former properties put to the best possible use, whatever that may be.

A food forest would be fantastic!

Kaiapoi

Trees planted, including native species, walkways - (no concrete) cycleways etc - (no buildings) picnic tables etc, a place where people can enjoy some time out.

Kaiapoi

Probably recreational
Not residential housing.
Parks, playgrounds, sports fields etc.

Kaiapoi

Plant native wetland plant species in 90% of area. Plant fruit/nut bearing trees in 10% of areas. Maybe 1% of area for community vegies.

Pines / Kairaki Beaches

As long standing members and Past President and Secretary of The Pines and Kairaki Beaches Residents Association we have been involved in the dialogue with the Waimakariri District Council and CERA of how we wish to see the area in the future and the PKBA submitted a plan to the Waimakariri Districtrict Council which we as residents endorse.
Please be guided by the Residents plan.
We own our section in the Red Zone and although our home was demolished our family stays there on weekends in our Caravan and Motor Home. We are Life Members of The Waimakariri Sailing club, participate in boating,whitebaiting,salmon fishing , beach walking swimming and cycling.. In the long term we intend to rebuild.
Thank You

Thank you. Your point is well made that any plans should be guided by the residents - both of the red zone and of the green zones adjoining the red zone. All the very best with your rebuild, of your area and your home.

Kaiapoi

Let nature reclaim it as a sanctuary of native plants. Allow the roads/paths to remain for access but do not spend money maintaining them- they can become walking tracks through the area.

Kaiapoi

-Bring back market gardens
-Edible forest
-Recreational areas
-Community hubs- halls/sports areas
-Nice big holiday park

Kaiapoi

A sculture park, a kinetic one, good as kid friendly and adults alike. Incorporated sound, water, land, reflection of quakes and perhaps Kai tahu.

Kaiapoi

Horse trails and wquestrian area- further thought: make sure there are trails suitable for carriage driving enthusiasts

Pines / Kairaki Beaches

I would like some space for horses to come a have a little flat space to do some schooling etc as this would be a great place which you could come to and do some schooling followed by a ride on the beach and through forests, what a magic day that would be!!

There are very few flat spaces where you can go and do and do some schooling (20m x 40m area (dressage size) would be a great start) without haveing to book and pay

Schooling is very important for horses but can be very boring in the home environment , getting out and having space for this is great

Should it not be returned to housing. Obviously it is possible and do able with the right foundations. Waimak Council appear to be the leaders in this area. Put it back to what it was. A lovely place to live.

Train from Rangiora to the city

Area for parking somewhere ajacent to the railway line, to park cars whist they take the train into the
city, as there is a massive number of folk who travel with just one person in the car into the city each day,
if using rail is to be considered there would need to be sufficent places to park cars.
