Today the Council voted to not move the urban boundary to the southern side of the Okura Estuary. So the beautiful Okura Estuary has been saved!
Please help us on this momentous occasion and stand up against urbanisation destroying the precious Okura Estuary.
This Monday Council will make their final decision on whether they will allow urban development on the southern side of Okura Estuary.
The Okura Estuary – the last estuary on urban Auckland’s eastern coastline unsullied by urban development – is a special haven to the bird and marine wildlife that lives there. However, all this stands to be destroyed by the Auckland Unitary Plan Hearings Panel’s decision to allow urban development in the area. Please let the Council know that you want the Estuary saved by signing the Long Bay Okura Great Park Society’s petition at https://www.change.org/p/save-the-okura-estuary
