PORTS OF AUCKLAND
Goff says his first instruction if he became mayor would be to put a stop to any extension of wharves out into Auckland’s harbour.
‘‘This is our harbour as Aucklanders. It doesn’t belong to the Ports of Auckland, they’re the tenant there at the time,’’ he says. ’’I just think it’s crazy that the most expensive real estate in New Zealand, the jewel and crown of our environment, they want to use as a second hand car park lot. I’m not in favour of that.’’
A recent report has said bulk cargo will mean the port will run out of room in three to ten years, Goff says.
