Re­port un­tidy Ti­tahi sheds

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

Fur­ni­ture con­tin­ues to col­lect out­side Ti­tahi Bay boat­sheds.

In July Kapi- Mana News re­ported com­plaints be­ing made about couches, plas­tic chairs and other items col­lect­ing out­side the south­ern end boat­sheds. One res­i­dent says it has been oc­cur­ring ‘‘ for years’’ and get­ting steadily worse.

Some of the items are picked up by high tides and taken out into the bay.

Porirua City Coun­cil sent a let­ter to boat­shed own­ers, re­mind­ing them of their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to keep the area tidy, but the mes­sage does not seem to be get­ting through.

In the last week, some top­soil has also ac­cu­mu­lated in front of one boat­shed and it too has been picked up by high tides.

The coun­cil’s man­ager

of en­vi­ron­men­tal stan­dards Jim Sut­ton says they have been keep­ing an eye on the fur­ni­ture and will continue to do so.

‘‘We have sent the let­ter but we will go out and have an­other look . . . we need those con­cerned about it to contact us.’’

A li­cence agree­ment be­tween own­ers and the coun­cil states each boat­shed should be ‘‘in a clean and tidy con­di­tion and clear from all rub­bish’’.
