‘‘All I can do is give a balanced view right now, I can’t actually say if I do or don’t support it. It’s now up to the voters to look at the proposal and work through and understand it.’’
WHAT PROJECTS ARE IN THE PIPELINE?
The council is looking to increase infrastructure for tourism on the coast, and has made an application to the government’s Tourism Infrastructure Fund to help pay for that. ‘‘We’d like to get toilets on the Ngawi and the Tora coasts, enlarge the area for campervans at Ngawi, and help sort out problems with rubbish there too.’’
WHAT DOES THE WAIRARAPA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE THINK?
The General Manager of Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce, Catherine Rossiter-Stead, said South Wairarapa was fortunate to have some extremely talented and motivated individuals among its population. They were highly skilled and had invested both time and money into their own enterprises in the district. With supportive community boards, and council funding for organisations such as DestinationWairarapa, some amazing things were happening in all three towns, ensuring that South Wairarapa was a great place to live, work and visit.
