This year Santa makes his way through the cen- tral city on Sunday, with a rain date the following Sunday, December 5. The parade has delivered joy to Auckland families since 1934, with a mix of more than 200 modern and traditional floats and characters traversing the 2.2km course this year. It starts at 2pm on the corner of Mayoral Drive and Cook St, travels down Queen St and finishes at the corner of Albert and Wellesley streets. This year the parade s official charity is the Leukaemia & Blood Foundation. St Lukes divides council opinion By SCOTT MORGAN There has already been a clash between mayor Len Brown and a group of the new councillors, but he doesn t think it will make working together difficult in the future. The disagreement is over the future of the proposed Westfield St Lukes mall expansion. Last week, Mr Brown along with most of the council voted 16 to five to uphold the decision of three inde- pendent commissioners granting a private plan change that is likely to see St Lukes double in size. Those councillors who voted against the proposal, including Cathy Casey, Mike Lee and Richard Northey, were some of his most avid supporters during the supercity election campaign. But a spokesman for Mr Brown says he admires the integrity coun- cillors displayed during the debate and believes he can work with them effectively over the next three years. While Dr Casey still supports Mr Brown in a general sense, she is saddened by the mayor and other councillors stance to accept the commissioners decision. I m incredibly disappointed after being entirely optimistic when I walked into the meeting. I thought it was a real oppor- tunity to turn the changes around. I ll just have to live with it. Dr Casey s major concerns about the St Lukes expansion include increased traffic flows and the effect it will have on local businesses. Mr Lee says the mayor seemed to base his decision on advice from council officers. People talk about left and right in councils but it doesn t really count that much. This was an issue driven by the community. Mr Brown has offered to mediate a solution that will benefit both Westfield and local residents, but it s unclear when that will start. His spokesman says the mayor is hopeful of a positive outcome as a result of the mediation. Westfield is aware that Len Brown and the council expect an outcome that works for local residents as well as for the company and Auckland as a whole. Otherwise an appeal to the Environment Court by residents is possible.
