Good on Gerrie Brownlie for his stand on the fate of the houses on the port hills. It had to be the only decision as this land is obviously very unstable and people that live there just have to realise that it is their safety the issue here. I live out at Riverlands holiday park the south side of Kaiapoi and was only affected initally by the flood bank having a big crack in and of course we felt all the shakes especially the first one on September 4th 2010 where the roadway was chopped up and not easy to negoate due to a lot of bumps and some flooding, although the shakes still give me a fright It has been easier to live with them. Thank goodness time is a great healer and im sure if we had another like the 22feb 2011 the Port Hills people would be the first to complain if their properties had not been deemed unsafe.
