Don’t trash la­goon

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


Why would the Porirua City Coun­cil al­low our most beau­ti­ful, tran­quil, widely-used pub­lic out­door leisure amenity to be trashed?

The pro­pos­als by Aqua­com to erect tow­ers around Aotea La­goon for a wake­board park are an in­sult to the many lo­cals who are at the la­goon for a quiet walk or jog ev­ery morn­ing and the hun­dreds who visit at the week­end to en­joy this un­spoiled en­vi­ron­ment with their fam­i­lies, young and old.

Where will the ducks go when the mo­tors are roar­ing and the small per­cent­age keen or able to take part in this noisy ac­tiv­ity de­cide they want to have a bit of fun at the ex­pense of oth­ers?

The tow­ers will not just be put up when the ac­tiv­ity is run­ning but will be a full-time blot on the land­scape of the la­goon.
