Ap­peal ques­tioned

South Waikato News - - NEWS/OPINION -

One won­ders just what is go­ing on here. Will these ap­peals cause us to lose our fac­tory?

It brings to mind the Whanga­mata Ma­rina So­ci­ety’s wasted years and as­so­ci­ated costs of the con­sents of the new ma­rina there.

It is quite ob­vi­ous that the Po­hara Marae-leased farm (ob­ject­ing to noise) would greatly ben­e­fit from the ir­ri­ga­tion the new fac­tory will pro­vide and they seem happy to live right next to a 70m py­lon.

Then there is the won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for the 70 new jobs cre­ated, some of which could go to the Ngati Koroki Kahukura Trust peo­ple who wish to get em­ploy­ment.

The ob­jec­tion of the ap­prox­i­mately 30 peo­ple who live at Po­hara Marae to the vis­ual im­pact is un­be­liev­able due to the fact it will be too far away to be seen with­out binoc­u­lars.

It is very sad that the Trust feels the need to stop progress with their friv­o­lous ob­jec­tions. Our small coun­try needs all the in­dus­try it can get if we are to con­tinue to en­joy our present life­styles, surely they can un­der­stand this.

It seems ridicu­lous that the same ob­jec­tions that have al­ready been dis­counted by the En­vi­ron­men­tal Court can be raised again. Shame on you NKKT Dianne Camp
