De­vel­op­ment not wanted

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

I was hop­ing that a new city coun­cil might un­der­take bet­ter scru­tiny of pro­posed build­ings by de­vel­op­ers, but Kenepuru Hous­ing Plan (Novem­ber 26) has proved me wrong.

In the Bay we have protested about in­ap­pro­pri­ate and ugly de­vel­op­ments on three oc­ca­sions. We have been ig­nored. First, a prime site in Tireti Rd was ap­proved by the coun­cil for units to be leased to So­cial Wel­fare for the el­derly.

They proved un­suit­able with stairs im­pos­si­ble to climb.

Next the de­vel­op­ment in View Rd was a dis­as­ter.

The build­ings are built on rot­ten rock.
