Traffic diversions at Quay intersection
30 Oct 2015
Traffic will be diverted and parking spaces will be closed while work is carried out to replace the sewer manhole at the Gladstone Road and Reads Quay intersection. Work will start Monday 2 November and will take approximately one week weather permitting. There may there be some tidy up work the following week. “Due to the location once we start digging it up, traffic won’t be able to get around the excavation to turn left out of Reads Quay onto Gladstone Road,” says water utilities manager Neville West. “It’ll also be difficult for two big trucks coming towards each other in Gladstone Road to pass in the area of the works.” “For the safety of everyone we’re requesting that heavy vehicles divert along The Esplanade to Ormond Road and Lytton Road during the works.” In addition, traffic coming off the bridge will not be able to go straight ahead up Gladstone Road. This is to ensure there is enough room for vehicles to pass each other around the works. There will be a diversion in place along Customhouse Street into Childers Road. The whole of the river side lane of Reads Quay from Lowe Street to Gladstone Road will be closed for the duration of the work. This includes parking spaces on that side of the road. The other lane will remain open. There will be a diversion in place along Lowe Street into Gladstone Road. Mr West says one lane in Reads Quay will remain open and all of the businesses on that side of the road are open for business as normal during the works. “If you normally park on the river side of that part of Read’s Quay you will need to make alternative arrangements that week. “We appreciate your patience during and cooperation with contractors on site.” Read more >>

Dogs on leash on Oneroa walkway
23 Oct 2015
We want dog owners to be aware of the rules around where dogs must be on a leash in public, after several reported incidents of uncontrolled and unleashed dogs attacking both people and other dogs along the Oneroa walkway. “Our Dog Control Bylaw lists the public places where you can exercise your dog on a leash and where you can’t,” says enforcement manager Jim Single. At the Environmental and Regulatory meeting on Wednesday, the committee recommended the bylaw be amended to make wording clearer that the walkway was included as part of the beaches listed in schedule 2 of the bylaw. “No changes have been made to the rules or locations listed in the bylaw,” says Mr Single, “We’ve just added more explanation to the city beaches that are listed in the on-leash areas under schedule 2 of the bylaw, to make it more clear where leashes should be used on the Oneroa walkway.” The new explanation says: Read more >>
New information on coastal flooding risk
23 Oct 2015
We have a new report detailing the risk of coastal flooding and possible effects to the district's coastline. The report includes mapping of coastline in Poverty Bay, Wainui, Tolaga Bay, Tokomaru Bay, Anaura Bay, Hicks Bay and Te Araroa. “The Gisborne district coastline extends some 500km,” says environmental and regulatory group manager Kevin Strongman, “With a lot of exposure to the extreme weather forces of the South Pacific Ocean, it means that flooding as result of extreme weather events, potential sea level rise and coastal erosion in some areas, are a reality for our communities.” The report identifies areas in the coastal environment that are potentially affected by coastal hazards over at least 100 years, as required by the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement (NZCPS). It does not include flooding from a tsunami event. Council has commissioned a separate report on Tsunami risk which is due later this year. “We are in the process of interpreting this report and mapping, and deciding which scenarios are appropriate to be used for Building Act and Resource Management Act purposes,” says Mr Strongman.
