News from the Annual General Meeting
The draft minutes of the AGM are available on the page AGM Documents
The AGM was held on Monday 11 July, with a smaller attendance than usual because of illness. There were no City or Regional Councillors, but the local MP Greg O'Connor was in attendance. The AGM was later than the usual March date because of sickness.
The guest speaker was Liam Hodgetts, the WCC Chief Planning Officer. LIam gave a presentation on the development of Upper Stebbings and Glenside West.
In his presentation he indicated that the option of a road connection from Tawa to Churton Park is not off the table. He also indicated the next steps in the District Scheme process. The Plan will be open for formal submissions between 18 July and 9 September. He emphasised that the formal submissions will be considered by a panel of Commissioners who are independent of the political process. So if there is an issue that you want to be considered in this way, make sure that you make your submission by the due date.

New track now open. Posted Thursday 9 Dec 2021
Following the construction of two bridges, the track from the Stebbings Dam Recreation Area to Rochdale Drive is now open. This provides an alternative route for pedestrians and cyclists from Westchester Drive to Rochdale Drive and Stebbings Valley. More work will be required to bring it up to an acceptable standard.

A word from the webmaster Posted Mon 20 September 2021
Thank you for visiting the site of the Churton Park Community Association.
The site has just been transitioned to New Google sites, so things will look a bit different. There are also still a few gremlins which I need to chase down, and some of the information needs to be updated and expanded.
To navigate to the pages on a small screen, use the "hamburger" icon in the top left corner (three stacked parallel lines) which will expand the page directory.
Check out some of the new material, including the section on walking tracks in Churton Park and the photo gallery.
Also note that this is a "secure" site (see padlock symbol in browser bar).
Come back again to see how it looks.

Have you had your Covid-19 vaccinations yet? posted 26 Sept 2021
Churton Park has escaped the worst of the problems so far but that is little consolation to those who have lost family members and friends, or whose health and livelihood have been compromised. We can neither afford to be complacent nor to be misled by the mischievous messages that circulate on social media.
