5 March 2021:
Additional information received, with thanks, from Auckland Council. But still no record of the actual consent decision. Note that they intend to destroy 26 Morton Bay Fig trees. They’re relying on remaining trees to hide the stumps. They’re taking out so much, it’s going to take them 69 days.
Geotechnical report prepared July 2020 by Fraser Geologics.
It says the playing field is “… considered highly suitable for future redevelopment uses, particularly those that might require asphalt surfaces such as netball courts or artificial turf surfaces such as hockey fields or similar. Such conditions are relatively rare for playing fields across Auckland City and would provide for considerable future cost savings if redevelopment is being considered.”
So why is TMA determined to stick plants all over it?
