- Reports from all the Community Boards outlining the major issues and projects in the areas.
- A report from the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board that recommends the Council introduce a 30kmh speed limit on the central section of Riccarton Road. The report also recommends the Council lower the speed limit on some of the side roads between Riccarton Road and Riccarton Bush.
- A report that recommends the Council establish a Coastal Hazards Working Group to support the Urban Development and Transport Committee with the delivery of the two upcoming projects relating to coastal hazards and adapting to climate change.
