POAL ACC Panuku AT have all had a hand in the planning fiasco that the harbour is now very much the poorer for.
During the discussions to secure Westhaven Marina back into public ownership a overarching waterfront governance body was mooted to no avail.
The whole harbour is fast becoming a piecemeal mess.
Have a close look at Councils decision to site the AC bases.
They are battle weary of the whole western reclamation tank farm area.
The failed court action to have Mobil remediate the heavily polluted tank farm area has the Council shouldering the entire costs.
The present bulk storage leaseholder has Council over the barrel regarding vacating the area sooner rather than later.
So much so that Council did not communicate with them at all regarding the AC base planning options.
