Dear Christchurch City Council,

Please supply the legislation you have relied upon which you believe allows you to close:

* playgrounds; and
* Botanic Gardens; and
* car parks within parks

during Covid-19 lockdowns.

Note the “COVID-19 Public Health Response (Alert Level Requirements) Order (No 9) 2021” expressly permits “limited recreation purposes” as “essential personal movement”.

This section of the order also permits people to drive places for limited recreation purposes, yet you have closed the car parked within parks.

Yours faithfully,

Cody C
