Public To Have Their Say On Takapuna Plans Next Month

Hearings of submissions on the draft Takapuna Beach Reserve Management Plan will reconvene in open session on Monday, 10 December 2012.

The six-person panel will hear from the remaining three submitters from 9am at the Takapuna Service Centre, 1 The Strand, with members of the public and media invited to attend the proceedings. The panel was not able to fit these three submitters into the three days of hearings in late October.

Panel chair and independent commissioner, Greg Hill, says additional information has been requested from council officers and relates to many of the questions raised by the submitters when they presented to the panel. This information is to be received on, or before, 18 December and it will be available on the council’s website.

“The hearings panel will receive the additional information before reconvening in the New Year to hear from the council officers and to ask any questions of them arising from that information. Once we are satisfied we have sufficient information, we will then be in a position to make our recommendations to the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board,” he says.

Submitters and the public will be informed when the hearings panel is to reconvene in the New Year.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
