Orakei Local Board Public meeting this Thursday on future of The Landing hardstand

Ōrākei Local Board hold their next meeting this Thursday and the future of the hardstand is top of the agenda. It’s a public meeting open to all.

Thursday 16th November, 3pm

St Chads Church & Community Centre
40 St. Johns Road

 The Ōrākei Local Board will receive feedback on their recent public consultation on The Landing. The majority of respondents submitted against the plan and there is a high level of negative public response to the Ōrākei Local Board’s actions regarding their closure of the hardstand.

 Auckland Council’s marine biosecurity staff have recommended that the local board consider maintaining a limited area of facilities at the Landing for short stay cleaning and antifoul application. Staff from the Parks and Community Facilities Department also note the biosecurity benefits of a hardstand

 Clear public support for a hardstand at The Landing
Results of the Ōrākei Local Board public consultation on retention of the hardstand at Okahu Bay shows a clear majority (64%) support retention of a short stay haul out and hardstand facility for boat cleaning and/or antifoul application.

Will The Ōrākei Local Board give due regard to the public input they sought? Will they protect the Hardstand’s designation in the Marine Precinct specified in Auckland’s Unitary Plan?

 The Orakei Local Board needs to receive the feedback generated by their public consultation on The Landing and revise their draft refresh plan to incorporate a hardstand facility.

See you Thursday.
