A national remembrance service will be held on the afternoon of Sunday 15 March 2020 to honour those killed in the Christchurch mosque attacks and to build on the spirit of unity that came out of the tragedy.
The City Council is proposing to establish a permanent 30km/h speed limit in central Riccarton, to go along with road layout changes that are intended to make the street safer and more attractive. The zone covers Riccarton Road between Matipo Street and Straven Road, including the retail sections of Rotherham and Division streets.
Two Riccarton residents have been recognised by the City Council for the positive contribution they have made to the community. Christchurch Civic Awards have been presented to David Wilkinson and Phil Tappenden.
