a long running dispute over public access tp a viewing platform at the end of princes wharf…
the developer..dave ‘cokey’ henderson..and the hilton hotel have been battling the a.r.c. over access..which was a condition of the resource consent for the development….
but ‘cokey’ and the hilton cordoned off the area…no doubt wanting to keep the great unwashed well away….
the court has ordered them to re-open access…..and to provide permanent seating for the public….
i think i’ll wander down there today….and check it out…as should you…..the platform has wicked views of the harbour..and is quite the spot….
(nice to see a victory for the little guys/gals…eh..?..)
