The submissions on the Maymorn Structure Plan will be considered by councillors at a pub- lic hearing before a decision is made on whether the contro- versial long-term project will go to the next stage and into formal consultation ahead of required changes to the city s district plan. The newly-formed Keep Maymorn Green residents group has organised against the develop- ment, which proposes a sustainable village community of up to 1800 dwellings with more than 4000 people in the Mangaroa Valley. The group was hopeful of a strong submission response, both in number and in argument, and the 433-return easily qualifies, being arguably the largest response the council has received on any issue in many years. A sizeable number of the submissions were delivered in a standard template form, as dis- tributed by the Keep Maymorn Green group. Ahead of last week s deadline, the release of the Maymorn draft plan, the council s key project in its urban growth planning, prompted a barrage of opposition letters to The Leader, the setting up of the residents group and, three weeks ago, a public meeting which attracted more than 150 people in unified opposition to the plan. Anyone making a submission can take up the option of speaking about the project plan at the coun- cil hearing. The hearing of these spoken arguments and the councillors reading of the submissions will be followed by a separate meeting to decide whether the plan moves to the next stage. The hearing will be in October or early November, city environ- ment services director Richard Harbord says. Officers don new uniforms A uniform approach: Richard Symonds, left, and Peter Dalrymple- Mortleman, with his dog, Diesel, model the new uniforms. Theresa Smith wears the old style. Photo: JIMMY NESS By JIMMY NESS Rimutaka Prison officers have traded in their 1970s-era outfits and welcomed in a modern uni- form. About 4000 prison staff nationwide donned new blue uniforms last Thursday. Officers working in the prison units now wear blue cargo pants and polo shirts, while staff dealing in public duties wear blue jackets, collared shirts, ties and tailored trousers. Corrections Minister Judith Collins says the new uniform looked more professional than its olive green predecessor. Very few people look good in that colour. It s a very hard colour to wear. It s incredibly important that [officers] have a professional uni- form because, frankly, we expect them to do a very professional job. The cost of the new uniform is about $200 to $350 cheaper than the old kit, which was first made in 1976. Ms Collins says the blue colour- ing aligned corrections with the wider justice area, which includes police, courts, and customs. Our officers needed a good uni- form which better reflected the work they do in that sector. The uniform is also better suited to practical work, says senior corrections officer Simon Edwards. We have got more durable trousers with pockets for tools. The old uniform tended to get caught and snagged. It s a positive change, every- one s been talking about how excited they are to be in a new uniform.
