13Nov11aThe Sustainable Neighbourhood Program is reinstated.

The Beach Valley Road Project, which was a pilot project with WCC, has transformed Beach Valley Road in Piha – there is no debate about this.


BV02We were devastated to hear that the program had been dropped by Council in a cost saving exercise given that it was a partnership between the people and council.

With Penny Hulse being busy as Deputy Mayor I approached Linda Cooper to get this reinstated in the LTP budget.   We lobbied hard and Piha people wrote to Linda.

That is huge.



LindaCooperThanks Linda Cooper, Penny Hulse who seconded Linda’s motion, and all Councillors that voted for it.  Today the environment and community won.
