Porirua City Coun­cil’s lat­est land pur­chase is un­likely to gen­er­ate the same level of pub­lic in­ter­est as its mil­lion­dol­lar Plim­mer­ton ac­qui­si­tion in April. The coun­cil is buy­ing 10 square me­tres of road in Ranui for the princely sum of $5000. The land fell out of coun­cil hands be­cause of an over­sight and is be­ing re-pur­chased, Mayor Nick Leggett says. ‘‘We’re just cor­rect­ing the own­er­ship of the road.’’ In April, some ratepay­ers baulked at the coun­cil de­ci­sion to spend $1.125 mil­lion on two beach­front Plim­mer­ton prop­er­ties with­out con­sult­ing the pub­lic.
