This project will now be compiled into a report, by staff, and will be presented to Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board members for their decision. A letter will be sent to all submitters to notify the timing of this meeting and informing submitters how to request speaking rights at that meeting should they desire to do so.



We are proposing to install no stopping restrictions 11pm—5am along both sides of Lester Lane.

Businesses in Lester Lane have been experiencing antisocial behaviour at night. People with cars have been congregating on the street outside businesses. Vehicle racing and burnouts are common. Empty bottles and rubbish are left behind for others to clean up afterwards. This has created a safety issue for staff in adjacent buildings  working at night.

The no stopping restrictions will enable NZ Police to move vehicles on and stop vehicles and their passengers from gathering here.
