New Brighton Residents Association frustrated by revamp

From Morning Report, 6:17 am on 15 June 2020

Christchurch's New Brighton community says they're sick of waiting for a long-promised revamp to its run-down local shopping area, and wants the council to dump the group it's given the job to.

Development Christchurch was set up by the City Council in 2016 to revitalise quake damaged areas like New Brighton.

The New Brighton Residents Association says the organisation was meant to be putting into action the council's master plan for New Brighton but they see no signs of progress.

RNZ reporter Rachel Graham spoke to the spokesperson for the New Brighton Residents Association, Brian Donovan.
