9] General Business
a] Dominic Hayden: handed round an optional contact list re breakins or seeing a problem with a house. Put name, Waikawa Beach address and contact number. The list will only be distributed to people on the list. The list will have a note about who is a permanent resident. Anyone seeing anything suspicious should call police not try apprehend suspects.
b] Janice Burton: Wants to thank the person who rang the Police about the recent breakins.
c] Shirley Cohen: re beach access for vehicles. What will happen here long term? The access was filled with sand and a week later it was all gone again. It’s a long-term issue but nothing seems to happen. Answer: the committee is persevering and persisting in working with the Councils and is awaiting the Tonkin and Taylor report. Work is continuing to sort out what to do. It’s a private access, not a public access.
Richard Walker: is it true Council are trying to lease or buy land by vehicle access? Answer: this idea has appeared from somewhere and has been neither confirmed nor denied by the Council. Miraz Jordan emailed the Council to ask them to add a bit more land to that being leased or bought for the purpose of a viewing platform. The reply from the CE was that the platform was a good idea which would be sent on to officers.
Peter Stewart: should people put names to comments on website? Miraz said her personal belief was that they should.
Motion: that the committee formulate a policy on website comments.
Moved: Peter Stewart, Seconded: Jacques Cohen
Confirmed: yes. One against. Can a policy be policed? Is it feasible?
Shirley Cohen: Walkway next to Richard and Maureen on Manga Pirau Street. Could that be improved for access? Not suitable for vehicles. Not viable for any vehicles.
10] Guest Speaker: None.
