Dog exercise area proposed for popular windsurfing & kiteboarding location

Popular sailing spot in a southerly is about to have a fenced dog exercise area attached to it without consultation. The area in McEwan Park, Petone is one of the most popular locations for beginner/recreational windsurfing and kiteboarding in Wellington, and one of the few locations sailable in a southerly wind.
Users of this area know that people exercising dogs in this area are already a problem with little respect for the other users. The council is planning to fence off a grassed area used for rigging , launching and practising kite flying. The area will attract many more dog owners, creating parking problems in a location which is already used to capacity on a good day. Besides the windsports users the area is used by numerous others for sports activities.

Wellington Harbour consultations - Airport extension and Container ship access dredging

Just a heads up - Centre Port started a consultation process and will be releasing details on Thursday. The proposal includes dredging around Aotea Wharf, and deepening of the entrance to Wellington to allow larger container ships to dock.
The first pre-consultation meeting was last night in Eastbourne. Why? Because possibly the most dramatic impact will be the effect on surf conditions along the Eastern Bays, potentially by 80% (reduction)! There will also be changes on the Seatoun side.
