Harbour heroes

Claudia Page

Urban Auckland, a group mainly of architects and urban designers , along with their supporters have won their High Court action to overturn consents for extending Bledisloe Wharf into the Waitemata Harbour. The court found that the consents for the extensions B2 and B3 should have been considered together in a bundle and that there were special circumstances which required the consents to be notified. Ports of Auckland have announced they will be stopping work, as they no longer have consent.

Our congratulations go to Urban Auckland - several of the group are Devonport residents including spokesperson Julie Stout-  and Stop Stealing our Harbour for their determination. Devonport Heritage have made a presentation on this issue as part of our Unitary Plan efforts. Thanks to our staunch members who packed the ferries and went along to the protests and the hearings.
