Noise Issue Recurring problem with 24hr scrap metal noise from Seaview.  Highly invasive crashing day and night during loadouts from Macaulays & Sims Pacific Scrap metals. The current Bylaws need reviewing as they are not suited to protecting residents from this kind of noise intrusion. Request monitoring of noise immediately complaints are lodged.

Log an RFS for noise control to look into.

Seaview Marina – Fresh water flushing of Outboard motors – ok at idle but some users insist on revving. Request signage.

Log an RFS

Sam Logged an RFS on your behalf  #374741

Parks & Gardens


Sprint Car Events in Seaview  - We request notification as an affected party before any more consents are granted.  The noise is highly invasive.

We also request an email and mail drop notification a week prior to these events so residents can make plans to be away. 

This event is a yearly event which is widely advertised well before to the day.

Noise – Dean Bentley


Environmental Issues   Oil can often be seen in the Seaview marina and white suds in light westerly conditions. There is a greater need for monitoring of live-a-boards and self-containment.

Guy Fawkes Request Fireworks ban at Pt Howard lookout - Pro-active response to Christchurch fires.  Rockets are currently able to be legally set off into the gorse which is a major hazard.

We have had small fires in the past.  Propose perhaps fireworks be restricted to the beaches but certainly prohibited adjacent East Harbour Regional Park.

By-Law in place?

Craig Cottrill


Marine Parade Cycle-lane  Request that the cycle-lane be smoothed and re-sealed and that it be made compulsory for cyclists to use the cycle lane where present as is the law in Australia. Currently cyclists are causing unnecessary obstruction to motorists

Sunshine Bay






Speed Limits along the bays

Concerns as speed was reduced from Lowry to Sunshine from 70 to 50. This is needed all along the bays

Assessed several times over the years and the community as a whole do not support it, therefore cannot go ahead.

Alan Hopkinson -Road & Traffic Div

Vandalised edge markers to be replaced. 

Awaiting stock (stronger with more flex)

Nigel parkin – Road & Traffic


Cnr Ferry Road and Marine Drive new yellow line and posts Safety / Visibility issues with cars exiting Ferry Rd at too high speed.


Suggestion for the 3 posts to be relocated closer to the edge of the road to ease the turn a little avoiding entering the opposite lane.

Passed to Contractor already to be done within the next 2 weeks.

Nigel Parkin – Road & Traffic


Moana Rd  Instruction sign no longer valid

Despite yellow lines on the right hand side of Moana Road there is a very old sign outside 12 Moana Road giving times of year parking is available which I have seen people pondering over & needs removing as no longer valid. I have spoken to the council over the years but it has never been removed – Log RFS

Footpath on the Eastern side of Marine Drive between Kereru and Moana Roads in Days Bay  Repeated annual concern about a  safe and defined footpath on the Eastern side of Marine Drive between Kereru and Moana Roads in Days

BYL’s in place, Footpath / road are the same level now with repeated resurfacing over the years.

Will not be lowered until big area wide renewal is needed.

Road & Traffic


Speed Humps Marine Drive

Speed bump in Marine Drive on the Eastbourne side of the pedestrian crossing opposite Cobar. There are some drivers whipping around from Eastbourne travelling far in excess of 50kph and one day someone will be severely injured by speeding vehicles. As I am writing this one vehicle has travelled south past the Gallery at a speed of probably 70kph.

Consultation process  would be needed

Alan Hopkinson – Road & Traffic


Williams Park Fence for advertising concerns raised about the Williams Park fence becoming a local billboard for matters not involving Days Bay.

Not approved by P&G Division

If noted then Log an RFS

Illegal Parking  Persistent Illegal Parking (yet again) on the southern side of the Days Bay Wharf.


Letters have been written to the Manager of Parking Services HCC but to date little obvious action appears to have been taken to ticket illegal parkers from Eastbourne – who preclude visitors to the Bay utilising the services of the commercial businesses in the Bay.

Request time limit parking. Sam logged an RFS on your behalf.  #374793

Zac Moodie – Road & Traffic


To stop the incessant sand flow across Marine Drive from Days Bay Beach. 


Can thought be given to the construction of a small nib wall which would (a) stop the sand drift and keep that precious commodity on the beach and (b) provide welcome seating and security for families visiting the Bay.
