Council needs to get rid of all silver birch and privet trees in streets, parks and other urban areas. They should be replaced where possible with native trees.

We have been awarded the lease of the Gisborne Crematorium Building at the Gisborne Cemetery where cremations take place in our cremator. This building is in a state of disrepair and desperately needs money spent on it by the GDC. Also the roof leaks. We would really appreciate the GDC spending some funding on this important building.
We are prepared to invest in an addition or stand alone structure to provide a small gathering & seated area for the families of Gisborne / Tairawhiti, to say their final farewells to loved ones before they are cremated. There is a very high demand from the community for this service to be available. In your next funding round could you please consider allocating money, for the upgrade of the crematorium building.
Many thanks
Kind regards

The GDC LTP should include provision to support the restoration of the Tokomaru Bay wharf. The wharf is valuable as a historic site, for local recreation, as a tourism asset and a safe berth for boats. The Tokomaru Bay Heritage Trust has been trying for 5 years to raise funds to restore this GDC owned wharf. The GDC has contributed engineering support but more is required. The local community has raised over $100,000 over 5 years.
The wharf structure is degrading and possibly near the point of collapse. If the wharf does collapse it is highly unlikely that another one would be built. The lessons learnt from similar projects and the newer technology available give the Trust confidence that a long lasting restoration is achievable.
When completed, the restored wharf will need a low level of maintenance that needs to be budgeted for by the GDC.

The Council owns the Tokomaru Bay Wharf and surely you should be contributing to its survival. This is history and heritage, Gisborne has a great pool which certainly doesn't need a total upgrade. Priorities in Council spending should be maintaining what we have e.g. the new Council Building!

I am writing to strongly oppose the Council's Taruheru Subdivision Road Links (Ruth Street to Gwyneth Place). I bought my house at the end of Ruth Street as it is in a culdesac and a very quiet street. Apart from the cars driving down from the end of the street, it is a nice, safe place to live. I am opposed to this link as there are families in this street with children and young grandchildren who have lived in Ruth Street for many years. My house is on the very end of the street and hear traffic going over the bump in the road a lot. This is only from the home owners, I would hate to think what it would be like with a thoroughfare. I don't see the need to link the two roads. There is no benefits for this and it will cause a lot of busy traffic and also encourage speeding down the private road. It is just inviting thugs to speed down our street and dare I say it, some could use it as an escape route during criminal activity. The road is also enjoyed by the old folk as a safe, quiet and picturesque exercise area as well as many other residents. Please don't ruin this peaceful and safe street by linking the roads together. There are absolutely no benefits to it. Only disruption, unwanted traffic noise and of course unsafe traffic.

Beacon Pathway encourages the Gisborne District Council to employ an Eco Design Advisor to support Gisborne residents to design, build and upgrade their homes to be warm, dry, healthy, and efficient.
________________________________________
Supporting Information:
Eco Design Advisors are experts in the field of home performance advice with a robust knowledge base which draws on the latest New Zealand and overseas research. Working in councils, they advise local residents on how to design, build, and upgrade homes to be warm, dry, healthy, and more energy and water efficient. Eco Design Advisors review house plans, assess existing homes providing a personalised upgrade plan for homeowners to follow, and provide advice on how to effectively and more cheaply operate a home. Research has shown that one-to-one consultations and individualised advice is an effective way to provide residents with access to information and motivate them to make changes to their homes. Councils provide considerable value to ratepayers in offering this free service, as well as upgrading local housing stock, improving housing affordability (through reduced operating costs) and housing-related health outcomes for residents, and reducing residential demand on local infrastructure (e.g. water).
Councils which currently employ Eco Design Advisors are: Christchurch City Council, Nelson City Council, Hutt Valley City Council, Kapiti Coast District Council, Palmerston North City Council, Hamilton City Council and Auckland Council. Dunedin City Council is in the process of advertising for an Eco Design Advisor.

The Tokomaru Bay Wharf restoration plan/project needs to be included in the District long term plan.
Tokomaru Bay wharf is of historical significance to the Tairawhiti/East Coast region - it deserves to be preserved for future generations.
Additionally, the benefits from tourism to the area can only be positive if tourists are able to include the restored wharf as a destination when travelling and enjoying the Tairawhiti/East Coast Heritage trail.

We are writing to strongly oppose the council's Taruheru subdivision road links( Ruth Street to Gwyneth Place).We purchased our house because it was in a culdesac with no through traffic. It is a lovely quiet street which is enjoyed by walkers, many of whom are the elderly with walkers from the rest homes. Nelson Road and the Lytton/ Nelson Road roundabout is very busy as it is without adding more traffic,we have 5 schools in the vicinity which brings in a lot of road users, cars, pushbikes and pedestrians, also the swimming pool complex and our local cemetery. The other concern we have is our home may drop in value if the Road is opened up.

As the owners of the Tokomaru Bay wharf at Waima, the GDC should strongly support and include the Tokomaru Bay wharf restoration in its project plans. The wharf has been left to deteriorate for far too long. Tourists, too often, express regret at the state of disrepair they observe.

We are writing to strongly oppose the Council's Taruheru subdivision Road links (Ruth Street to Gwyneth place).
We bought our house in Ruth Street because it is in a cul-de-sac,and quiet with few vehicles passing our door, Ruth street is frequently used by walkers, many from the nearby Rest homes who feel safe because it is not busy with traffic. Nelson Road has enough traffic volume without adding more, with 5 schools in the vicinity of the Lytton Road/Nelson Road roundabout,the Swimming pool complex,and the cemetery.Our other concern would be the drop in value to our home, a road through would make people feel less safe.

I accept that it is necessary to maintain roads in a safe useable condition but I think you need to look more closely at the causes of damage to our roads that necessitate high levels of maintenance. Firstly, are roads constructed and repaired to a sufficiently high standard; secondly, are axle-loadings on some vehicles excessively high for the standard used? Consideration should be given to a) restricting certain vehicles to routes constructed to an adequate standard, b) charging users 'pro rata' for damage caused, c) encouraging use of available alternative transport modes, such as rail, on certain routes.

Planned expenditure on 'Rubbish & Recycling' seems to be principally directed towards management of two existing landfill sites. I understand that Gisborne's Rubbish is currently trucked (by road) to Paeroa; what a waste of fuel - although I am informed this is the cheapest option available. I think more effort should be put into better methods of disposal: location of a nearer landfill; consideration of transport by rail rather then road; investigation of alternatives to landfill e.g. Incineration or pyrolysis (possibly in collaboration with neighbouring authorities like HBRC).

I STRONGLY OPPOSE THE SUGGESTED LINK THROUGH RUTH ST TO GWYNETH PLACE. WE PURCHASED OUR PROPERTY 10YRS AGO IN A QUIET STREET WITH NO THOUGHTS OF ANY THROUGH TRAFFIC. THE 7 OWNERS OF PROPERTIES DOWN THE RIGHT OF WAY CERTAINLY DIDN'T EXPECT ANY CHANGE IN THEIR ROADING EITHER. WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO CONSIDER A DIFFERENT ROUTE= i.e. OUT THROUGH JOANNE ST TO CAMERON ROAD
