Bid to rid sub­urb of power py­lons

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A pe­ti­tion to rid sub­urbs of power py­lons is be­ing launched in One­hunga.

City Vi­sion’s Bury the Py­lons cam­paign got un­der way last month and now One­hunga res­i­dents are be­ing asked to get in­volved.

A meet­ing to dis­cuss re­mov­ing py­lons from the sub­urb and putting ca­bles un­der­ground is be­ing held at St Peter’s Church, on the cor­ner of One­hunga Mall Rd, and Church St, start­ing at 3pm to­mor­row.

It’s be­ing hosted by MP Phil Goff, list MP Carol Beau­mont, Auck­land coun­cil­lor Richard Northey, and Manukau Har­bour Restora­tion So­ci­ety chair­man Jim Jack­son.

Or­gan­is­ers say the py­lons ruin views and lower prop­erty val­ues.

Con­tact Maun­gakiekie-Ta­maki Lo­cal Board chair­man Si­mon Ran­dall on 021 262 8082, or sran­dall@ihug.co.nz for more in­for­ma­tion.
