Plan 63 is concerned with those facilities required to maintain and service the needs of Christchurch city including telecommunications networks and services.
Main points covered in the TCF submission were:
The TCF believes that Plan 63 – Utilities should service the people of Christchurch without being so overly restrictive as to hinder the deployment of telecommunications infrastructure, which invariably would have a negative impact on those same people.
- Ensuring the Council plan makes adequate provision for the ability to build and repair network infrastructure including allowance for the creation of new overhead lines.
- The installation of telecommunications and support equipment near schools and reserves.
- Concerns with Plan 63 drafting that appeared to reinterpret the National Environmental Standards for Telecommunications Facilities (NESF).
