Report untidy Titahi sheds
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’’.
