The fight over Takapuna Beach continues


Recommended Posts

Judging by some of the nefarious happens that are going on it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest.

 

Chated to a chap a few weeks ago who said 'I've managed to get 6 submissions in...' and finished it with 'so far'. Don't know why he bothered as this was a done deal a long time ago.

Come on sailors who oppose this (which is most of the people in this 22 page thread)   Start posting questions "at" YNZ in the YNZ forum.   Start targeting the sports mimistern to change the fundi

The Landowner is US mate! The public! It's public ground. The council are our representatives. So you think it's OK that the campground just gets bulldozed? Seeing as it's been there for 80 years and

Seems to me YNZ don't realise just what damage this is doing.

Perception out there isn't "YNZ".... it's "yachties" in general... perceived to be rich white pricks trampling over the ordinary bloke.

Come to think of it ... Burling, Tuke, Coutts, Blake, Dalton et al got there without a National Sailing Centre (sorry, "Community Marine Activity Hub") ... why the pressing need now?

Thank you for providing unquestionable proof we don't need to lose the uniqueness and good economic benefits the Taka site currently gives by changing it to another use (at a horrendously large cost) for a small elite group who will not provide anything like the current economic benefits and will only create a larger parking nitemear and inevitable conflict with the 1000's that already use the area.

 

The high performance centre is a good idea of that there is no doubt but the Taka location would be one of the worst possible places for it though... and on many levels.

 

Well over 8.5 million dollars of tax and ratepayers money for a few offices, a dunny and some concrete hardstand. Someone is taking the piss, millions of it straight into their pocket. How many developers are there in the HA Trust? A few.

Hmmm, it will be interesting to see how the public poll works. I imagine the outcome will come down to wording and scope of the questions i.e will it be focused on just the landowner approval for the sailing center or will it be sailing center vs campground.

 

I put in a submission of support to the resource consent. I'm a local resident, member of Takapuna Boating Club and ex sailor of Hobies at Takapuna. I hope it goes ahead!
