Christchurch City Council’s Regulatory Compliance Unit has completed its investigation into an incident involving Councillors Phil Mauger and James Daniels last July when a trench was dug without authorisation on land adjacent to Pages Road.

The works were carried out on Crown-owned land managed by the Council without Resource Consent. The Council’s compliance unit began an investigation when alerted to the works.

As a result of the investigation, Cr Mauger was issued with an infringement notice and fined $300.

In addition to this, Cr Mauger has agreed to carry out other red zone maintenance work at no cost to the Council.
