Referring to the ratepayerfunded City Focus advertisement ( Kapi-Mana News, August 28) re Cars on Titahi Bay beach.
Porirua City Council is wasting time and money attempting to relitigate the whole issue of vehicles on Titahi Bay beach.
The council is locked into Environment Court Orders and legal agreements with Greater Wellington Regional Council and the Titahi Bay Residents’ Association that the current coastal rules are workable and enforceable.
These rules provide for parking at each end, a car-free centre beach, and late night curfew except for boatsheds etc.
The foremost ‘‘essential need’’ in the Bay community’s village plan is that these rules must be enforced. The co-operation of PCC with the GWRC rules is required to achieve this.
What purpose can PCC serve by now attempting to create public controversy when consensus was achieved by the community long ago?
For TBRA and GWRC the matter is set in concrete and cannot be changed without substantial legal costs to anyone wishing to try.
