Hahei Meeting

The long awaited meeting between Hahei residents and Mayor Leach will ak place from 10am till 12 noon this Saturday. It will groundbreaking occasion as Council sets about endeavouring to overcome the underlying antagonism that has developed over the years amongst those who consider that their interests have been completely ignored while the walkway plans have been developed.

The reecent independent transport investigation totally vindicated the often expressed view of the residents that their transport and parking objections had been completely ignoired. The recommendation of the review was that work cease until professional research is undertaken over the Christmas period and future needs properly analysed, given the resources avaialable.

Here is the Notice of Meeting put out by Chairman Bill Stead
