Enterprise North Canterbury has been working with other regional tourism organisations to develop a Canterbury dark sky trail. The Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve was established in 2012, while the Kaikōura Dark Sky Trust is about to apply for dark sky sanctuary status and interest is growing in other Canterbury communities.

Crunch time is fast approaching for two North Canterbury schools bulging at the seams. Woodend School and Te Kura o Tuahiwi are on the Ministry of Education's list of 352 building projects under review.

And there'll be a review of the rules protecting Canterbury's coastline next year.
