TE WIWI NĀTI HAPŪ CLUSTER PETITION: THE ROAD

 Our road from and between the Kaiinanga Hill to the end of the Tikapa and Awanui Roads is often unsafe and inaccessible, especially in the wet months.   Whānau still live in that valley, and people travel in and out daily for work, for school, or to visit other whānau.

Preserve the Eskdale Park in the Esk Valley Napier

Petition summary: The HB Mountain Bike Club and the Hastings District Council have put forth a proposal to develop the Eskdale Park into a mountain bike hub with further future plans of development.

First up...If you're going to share this on Facebook PLEASE sign it too - Thanks! A vocal minority, unhappy that their choice for mayor did not get elected, wish to push through a change back to an FPP (first past the post) system, in a thinly veiled attempt to get Dunedin's most divisive councillor in modern times elected as a minority mayor! A petition has been created by their supporters and it felt appropriate to 'balance the scales' Why FPP is undemocratic, and STV is a much better system:
