Group Will Support Appeal


Group Against Development On Te Raekaihau Point

Group Will Support Appeal


Group Against Development on Te Raekaihau Point are committed to continuing working with and supporting Save the Point in their appeal at the Environment Court against the decision to grant Resource Consent for an aquarium and cafe development at Te Raekaihau Point on Wellington's south coast.

Group Against Development on Te Raekaihau Point is also exploring other legal options to support the Save the Point appeal at the Environment court.

Group Against Development on Te Raekaihau Point was also among 3602 submitters to oppose the development through the resource consent process.

We are a community group that has grown from, and is continuing to grow, from the large amount of opposition in the community to an aquarium and cafe being built at Te Raekaihau Point.

Many members of our group are Wellington ratepayers who are also deeply concerned by the fact that the applicants have had many of their costs met through more than $500,000 in grants and by the promise of a seven million dollar interest free loan that ratepayers will have to pay the interest on.
We are also alarmed by the readiness of WCC to fund any proceedings, against the interest of the wider community, that the MEC may have in the Environment Court leaving the community to act as guardians of the south coast with no funding help.

Group Against Development on Te Raekaihau Point will continue to work within the community to ensure that the wild beauty of Te Raekaihau Point is not destroyed by the building of an aquarium and cafe development there.
