On TV1 last night: Environmental group opposing plans for Auckland coast development
- reporter Sam Kelway.
The Okura Environmental Group says plans to develop 130 hectares of coastal land north of Auckland will have disastrous effects on the nearby marine reserve.
Okura - Long Bay is currently being polluted by irresponsible developers to the detriment of future generations. That's our children and their children's environment!
Unitary Plan Fight by Long Bay Okura Great Park Society
The Auckland Unitary Plan (AUP) has put many provisions protecting the waters, ecology and landscape of Long Bay and Okura under threat.
Date & Time: 27th January @ 9:00am - 5:00pm
Venue: Level 16, 205 Queen Street, Auckland CBD
Dear Long Bay-Okura Great Park supporters...
The Society is deeply concerned that some of what so many of us fought for in the past may be lost. As I have told you in previous newsletters, the process of developing the Auckland Unitary Plan has put the protections we achieved for Long Bay and Okura in danger of being overturned.
Next Saturday, the Friends of Okura Bush are holding a Forest Festival, and the Long Bay - Okura Great Park Society will have a stall there. Drop by and say hello if you are a member. Enjoy a bit of local culture at this annual community event.
These shocking photos of clay sediment running down the creek at the north end of Long Bay Beach were posted to our Facebook page in December.
Fine clay particles from the earthworks behind the park are pouring down into the sea, where they will spread in a layer on top of the sand throughout the entire marine reserve.
Ever wondered what the development excavation beside Long Bay Regional Park looks like?

We are now well into the New Year and I am glad to at last be able to up-date you on where we are up to in regards to the concerns we have had with the Auckland Unitary Plan.
