Public forum

Tihau Bishop presented his proposal for an Avenue Of Remembrance to the Committee for their consideration. The proposal included design plans for a memorial that he believes could be built in time for Armistice Day at the Floral Clock on Marine Parade; the key points being:

-      Community concerns that there would not be a place for the public to attend a Armistice Day service as the new memorial with Eternal Flame may not be constructed in time. This design could be erected in time for this service.

-      The memorial proposed was designed to fit in with the new memorial and be complementary to the plans.

-      The memorial design included 12 Pou as commemorative elements from the Musket Wars through to World War I and World War II and recent conflicts & peacekeeping missions.

-      The memorial would be build out of Coromandel Granite.

-      Costs for the memorial would be available by the end of June and private funding from the community would be sought.

 

The Committee thanked Mr Bishop for his time and thoughtful proposal, special mention to the memorial including other conflicts and service people.

 

The Chief Executive provided the Committee with an update on the War Memorial Project, he advised that this proposal was out of scope for the current work but there may be the potential for some design elements to be incorporated.
