We don’t need a property subcommittee, because residents do not want Porirua City Council and senior management to spend even a single dollar more on underperforming land and buildings.
It seems the majority of councillors believe they were elected to a property investment/ speculation/development business, rather than a council.
Purchasing residential properties for reserves to be developed sometime in the future, when for example, we cannot afford to sort out stormwater problems, which have already existed for 30 years, is disgraceful.
Buying a $1m plus residential property in Titahi Bay to prevent possible ugly beachside developments, shows just how badly council is doing its job.
Why not simply change the District Plan in respect to beachside sections? Of course, that requires work, rather than simply spending ratepayer dollars. ANDREW WELLUM, Camborne.
