Ports of Auckland is about to start adding 2 finger wharfs to Bledisloe Wharf, projecting nearly 100m into the Waitemata Harbour.
Construction starts April 2015.
Resource consents for the wharf extensions were issued secretly and without any public notification or public consultation by Auckland Council.
The extensions will completely block the Queens wharf view of the outer Waitamata Harbour and it will mean we spent $40 million to look at a wharf car park and some big bulk cargo ships.
The Waitemata Harbour and its views are one of Auckland’s greatest assets, one we hold in trust for future generations. Ports of Auckland are stealing it bit by bit.
Don't let the Ports of Auckland give two fingers to the people!
