NEW BRIGHTON Projects

I grew up in South Brighton so I am very interested in finding out what is happening in New Brighton in regards to development. In some of the previous posts there is a diagram on how the esplanade and mall will look. There was a little bit of information on the development of an amusement park and thermal pools on the foreshore in a community newspaper. There were supposed to be plans of revitalizing New Brighton. Has anyone got any updates.

The revitalisation of New Brighton is seen as a key project in development of a suburb that is currently in a state of decline.

New Brighton needs to be a destination place where the sea and foreshore attract people and the beach is ‘connected’ back to the commercial area to attract spending and investment.

Input from the various interested groups has been achieved through the use of consultation and then the establishment of a Taskforce - the ultimate aim being to revitalise the area. The Master Plan included outlines the areas to be addressed and other factors that will enable the vision to be fully completed.

Weekend ban on fishing from New Brighton Pier

The Burwood Pegasus Community Board has voted to ban fishing from the pier on weekends and statutory holidays between 6am and 6pm during the period of daylight saving. They are also asking the Council to ban crab pot use on the pier. Since it opened nine years ago, the Council has received numerous complaints about inconsiderate behaviour of some fishers. Unsafe fishing practices, such as overhead casting, the use of multiple rods limiting the space available for other fishers and damage to the handrail and other structures have caused problems. Many fishers do not clean up making it unpleasant for other visitors. Extensive consultation with the community found most people favoured some control over the fishing on the pier. Many also wanted more enforcement of the rules and education on what is acceptable. Regional Parks Manager Kay Holder says the decision is a compromise which will mean fishing is still able to be done from the pier, but not at the busy weekends “Some people wanted a complete ban on fishing from the pier and others wanted no change in the current situation, so restricting fishing in summer weekends and statutory holidays means we can accommodate visitors and those who want to fish,’’ Ms Holder says. People have been flouting the current rules which include no overhead casting, using bait cutting boards and fish cleaning tables provided and no fishing in no-fishing zone,’’ she says. “We needed to make the pier safe for everyone.’’ Fishers still have the opportunity to fish from the pier during the week year-round, says Ms Holder. They can also fish before 6am and after 6pm on weekends and statutory holidays during daylight saving. There is no ban on fishing when daylight saving ends. The ban will be enforced by a mixture of security guards and park rangers who will have the ability to trespass people who flout the rules, she says. Extra enforcement officers are planned and more signage will spell out hours and rules around fishing. To find out how well the new ban is working, it will be reviewed at the end of the summer. “Most people who fish off the pier are considerate and comply with the rules,’’ says Ms Holder. “ It attracts a wide range of people including children, family groups and adults who come from the city as well as New Brighton and there are of lots of different ethnicities who enjoy fishing. “We certainly don’t want to fully ban fishing at this stage, rather to make sure

What was the point of bumping an extinct thread? Sure if you've got some news, please post it, we'd all like to read it!

I've just quickly scanned through the city council website and found nothing new about the further developments at Brighton - I think we are going to have to wait until the new year before we see anything happening - I'm sure it's all going to kick of next year

One thing they do need to sort is a good transport link out to the centre of Brighton. I think a tram link would go a long way in making this attractive.

Milan - any chance you are heading out this way? If you do, a photo update of the area would be good, I know nothing is happening yet, but it's always good to get the before pictures in, so we can appriciate the change in the future.

The council have done an excellent job with the mall upgrade (if only they could do the same with citymall), and interestingly the area has seen a reduction in graffiti and vandalism.

As far as developments go. Pier One- hmmm. Not sure whats happening here, signage taken down a few months ago, the house on the site was re-leased to tenants although they have vacated again recently. South of New Brighton Mall (on Marine Parade) a 32 unit two building development (of 6 levels each) is planned. The Council required the developer to list the resource consent breaches on a large bill board for local residents and since then, the grass has grown to about 5 foot and the few pre-construction items there have been removed. There has been no news on the Owls Tce redevelopment..well not that I am aware of. This had 'huge potential' as it could have housed hundreds of new residents for the area. The new zoning has limited multilevel redevelopment. This site could easily accomodate 4 10-15 storey residential towers. They would look spectacular at the entrance to Brighton.

Most of the development taking place at the moment here are townhouse or infill single level dwellings (over 60s units). A 16 unit development was recently completed in North Brighton, but its only 3 levels and not photo-worthy. NB does have a big future though. School zoning means NB's future is with empty nesters, dinks and oinks... and these groups love towers.

Re: Tram; Brighton already has excellent road and bus connections to the city. Car drivetime is 12 minutes. I'd like to see the tram continue to service and expand within the four aves, but expanding out here could be a white elephant.

If I can find my NB development pics I will post them.

Can and will do. Give me about a fortnight.

I really like Brighton think the Mall upgrade is good too. Im not for malls being turned into roads but this one works for me. The amount of times Ive stopped and bought something from a shop because of the ease of parking just outside... used to just drive past and buy my icecreams and coke elsewhere. Mall just needs a few more nicer retailers. Thats a tough one though because this area is in easy reach of The Palms and Eastgate Malls. You can get good coffee at Brighton now.

What sort of scale is the redevelopment of New Brighton likely to be are we talking $100 million worth of construction or up to $1 billion. One report said there were likely to be more highrises in New Brighton than in the Christchurch Cbd. If that is the case then it is potentially going to be quite significant.

I think alot of original Christchurch residents wouldnt dream of moving out to Brighton. They have an idea about it which is partially true but also a little bit out of date as being an area for no hopers or the permanently unemployed. Honestly if I didnt have such a central city bias I would easily live in Brighton. I expect it will take off- they need to be very careful about it and make sure all of the initial projects are good ones. Otherwise they will be jeopardizing potential revitalisation.

All is very quiet on this MAJOR development potential.

I have just downloaded the city plan for the next 10 years. It is a large doc, it may have something in it telling us what the councils plan is.

You can download it of the CCC website. There is a link Tony on the top right hand corners I think......

In today's press. A decision has been made to increase height limits. It wants to attract more people so that it can revitalise the flagging seaside suburb. Apartments along Marine Parade will be up to 20 metres while some commercial buildings maybe upto 30 metres. Great news for New Brighton.
