MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES OUT THERE
For the last few years I have been walking my dog down Princess Street at any time of the day to collect my mail from the Post Office.
During that time I have not seen another dog in this area.
What a patronising statement (they seem like nice people).
Is this because I have no tattoos or because I am elderly.
I recently visited Highbury in Birkenhead, they even have water bowls outside cafes so dog walkers can have a coffee break.
Surely Adrienne Bell has more important council agendas to spend her time considering.
Apart from the fact that one photo was richer in colour, and the other showed the erection of retaining walls and post and rail fencing, I for one could see no indication from the photos that swimming had any impact on the environment.
I have read many reports stating that our rivers are unfit for swimming (not my assessment).
Now that we have the perfect river to swim in, it is having a negative impact on the environment (DOC assessment). What a quandary we are in. It had nice rural feel I thought. The campground recently changed hands and they have improved the environment heaps.
They have done what the Council seems unable to achieve.
The bridge was removed and the domestic ducks were not allowed to poo in the stream, the Mallards, wild ducks, were O.K. The Domestic ducks had to go. The Bridge had to go. How long do we have to put up with these bureaucrats
No vision and totally out of touch with reality.
P.S. No improvement was made to the footpath.
Surpise, surrpise Kylisha Winterharris: Time to cut them down or make tiki polls of them amd plant new trees somewhere.
Councillors should be covering more important issues than dogs.
