Last week the Auckland Council announced a holistic approach to the issues at Weiti, Long Bay and the Marine Reserve. The announcement states:
“Late last year Auckland Council started to develop a comprehensive whole-of-catchment model to enable the council and the public to understand the effects of development in all catchments feeding into the Long Bay - Okura Marine Reserve.”
This is a great victory for all the people who have contributed to the Society’s activities over the last 30 years.
The council staff have asked for the society’s involvement in the study. Obviously, it is an opportunity that would be hard to ignore so the committee will meet council staff to discuss how to effectively contribute while keeping our objectives in mind.
