Council Consulting on Legal Highs

vote

The Government plans to lift the temporary ban and make it legal for certain psychoactive products (“legal highs”) to be sold from mid-2015 if they pass new stricter health tests. Synthetic cannabis smokes are unlikely to pass and be legally sold.

vote

Come along to Headstart (10 Rongotai Road) and meet with other business owners. A representative of the Retailers Association will be speaking. We will also have draft copies of the Kilbirnie map with advertising spots available.
How about having a week long celebration in May when the road works are finished to say that Kilbirnie is open for business? Any ideas?

2013

vote

This year brings a new opportunity for us as we continue to watch Bay Road be dug up.
We have had a slight change of focus with our meetings moving to after work 5.30 pm time and being hosted in different business premises. It should be interesting to see how others operate and what they do.
We are also now an incorporated society and can therefore undertake larger projects and apply for funding if required.
We look forward to meeting new people and working together to make Kilbirnie a great place to work, shop and recreate.

Bay Road Upgrade

vote

The Bay Road upgrade works continue for the next few months (to April).  They will cause inconvenience while the works are being undertaken outside individual shops but we hope the end result is worthwhile.  Any concerns should initially be directed to Stephen Simpson the WCC project manager on 8038723.

If you have a special event or sale coming up please let him know and he will try to accommodate you in  the works.

The KBN is putting together a map which will be made available to all businesses, the sports facilities and accomodation venues around Kilbirnie.  It will show where these facilities are and how to get to the shopping centre.  Businesses will be featured under retail, eating and banking categories to entice people to come to Kilbirnie.  If you would like to be part of this please contact Bruce on 920-1595.
