Senior Planning Engineer John Moore emphasised that its important
for people to understand that at this stage there has been no conclusion

Open days at the South Brighton Community Centre in Beatty Street:
- Saturday 15 February from 10 am - 3 pm, or
- Tuesday 18 February from 5 pm - 7 pm.
We want to give the community all new information that the
Council receives, at the earliest opportunity, said Mr Moore.

said Mr Moore.
Copies of the report are available at Civic Offices, Linwood and
Shirley service centres and New Brighton Library or see www.ccc.govt.nz/OceanOutfall
