Back to front

Auckland City Harbour News - - Letters - RICHIE AF­FORD Mt Al­bert

The coun­cil, for some un­specifi rea­son ob­scure to the pub­lic, has pro­vided an of­fi­cial name to the ser­vice lane be­hind the Mt Al­bert shops – Belfast Lane.

By do­ing so it has pro­vided le­git­i­mate ad­dresses to those premises which were de­signed orig­i­nally sim­ply as base­ments or carpark­ing for the busi­nesses above.

I think we are en­ti­tled to know if th­ese premises are be­ing used for le­gal rea­sons and for the orig­i­nal pur­poses for which they were de­signed and au­tho­rised.

Fur­ther­more, th­ese back fa­cades now be­come frontages and the coun­cil has ac­cepted re­spon­si­bil­ity to keep road frontages clean and free of graf­fiti.

I am invit­ing the coun­cil and the com­mu­nity board which is charged with the duty of pro­tect­ing lo­cal in­ter­ests to make a full, frank and pub­lic ex­pla­na­tion of its ac­tions and in­ten­tions, past and fu­ture, re­gard­ing this Mt Al­bert dis­grace.
