  • The fight continues to save a protected ecosystem and endangered kauri from destruction.     15 August 2018
    Main image

    Over the last, almost year and a half, there has been a great deal of effort put in by a dedicated community and its supporters to highlight the impacts of a misguided proposal to build a water treatment plant and reservoirs on land acknowledged as having significant ecological value.

    Recently released reports, commissioned by Watercare, and reviewed by independent experts have confirmed what we have been saying from the start about the value of the ecosystems.

    Kauri exist on the site and two of the oldest kauri in Auckland are located only a short distance away. It is not known if these have been infected by kauri die-back disease, but the threat is increased if this proposal proceeds.

    Watercare continue to march on despite there being other options (on their original list of potential sites) that would not result in the levels of social disruption or ecological destruction that use of this site at the gateway to the Waitakere Ranges will cause.

    The Resource Content for this development will be submitted to Council at some point in the coming months.

    The Titirangi Protection Group (TPG) will continue to work to raise community awareness of the proposal and its impact as well as supporting the community to have their voice heard during this process.

    Ongoing fundraising will be used to support this work and to enable legal, planning and other experts to assist.

    Thank you again to those that have supported this cause, who have raised awareness through campaign activities or donated.

    The fight is not over.

    Continue to stay up to date via our Facebook page and other social channels.

  • Extension of Give a Little page date.     24 November 2017
    Main image

    On Wednesday 22nd November 2017 the TPG served notice to the Environment Court of its intention to appeal their decision in the High Court.

    The appeal will be financed by community fundraising efforts and will help support the fight to save protected native bush from destruction and the building of an industrial size water treatment complex at the gateway to the Waitakere Ranges.

    This appeal requires renewed effort to raise funds and an extended date for the page is required to allow this important work to be done over the coming months as we work towards a High Court hearing, expected to be scheduled in the first half of 2018.

  • Titirangi Protection Group update     6 July 2017

    Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your generous donations. Funds are being used to enable a range of community awareness activities, including signage, design and printing of pamphlets/flyers, posters and displays. It is also assisting in supporting the work of ecological, engineering and legal experts who are helping our cause.

    Also to let you know, we have had a change in the bank account used for the Titirangi Protection Group. Funds will now be paid to and managed by our recently elected Treasurer, Glenn Schussler, on behalf of Titirangi Protection Group.

    We firmly believe that people power will prevail and that the best outcomes for the Titirangi community and the surrounding environment will be achieved. That power is gaining momentum and our voices are becoming louder, so we thank you for your continued support.

    Thank you

    Titirangi Protection Group
