Help us stop Auckland Council from stealing more of our harbour.

Main image

Auckland Council is yet again trying to steal our harbour. Resource Consent hearings start 18 February for a Council-sponsored 90m extension into our precious Waitemata Harbour, off the end of Queens Wharf.

$14 million of your money will be spent pouring more concrete into our harbour to create two massive concrete structures with connecting gangways just to dock a few oversized, foreign owned cruise ships each year that arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon. The Council’s justification for spending $14 million of your money is full of errors and overstatements. Auckland Council hasn’t learned that Aucklanders want to preserve their harbour for future generations, and that we oppose selling our environment for a few extra dollars, most of which will end up in the pockets of foreign-owned shipping corporations.

Unfortunately, citizens of Auckland must now bear the legal cost of fighting this ill-conceived idea, which has been endorsed by Mayor Goff and his Council (despite Mayor Goff campaigning on no further incursions into the harbour). It’s going to cost more than $60,000 to defend our harbour - the groups fighting for your harbour are Urban Auckland, Stop Stealing Our Harbours, Auckland City Centre Residents' Group, Character Coalition, Civic Trust Auckland, Devonport Heritage, Parnell Community Committee and Auckland Architecture Association.

If you want to make a difference, here’s a beautiful way to let the Council know they’ve already stolen enough of our harbour.

Please give generously to the Give-a-Little Legal Support Fund to stop this short-sighted madness and force the Council to develop a long-term vision for our waterfront instead.

Use of funds

The funds raised from this page will go directly to fund the legal fees associated with fronting a submission to the Resource Consent hearing and campaigning to stop the Queens Wharf extension.

“Great work to protect our children's future heritage.”
“I whole heartedly support Urban Auckland's demands for stakeholder and community engagement and an overall vision for intergrated waterfront planning to preceed ad hoc proposals and developments of this kind. Similar struggles are taking place in connection with the regions marinas by Auckland Marina Users Association Inc as well as other interested stakeholders. The common thread seems to be that Council and CCO's such as Panuku have lost sight of their primary responsibility to be the custodian and defender of community interests.”
“We need a full consultation process before any more water or foreshore developments proceed so as to not compromise future options in our "city of sails".This includes wharfs, marinas, jetties, any other structures in the waterways, islands, beaches and estuaries.”
“Please leave our harbour alone--- what you have left of it!”
“Thank you so much for your hard work fighting this short sighted travesty.”
“Thank you for opportunity to protest. TD”
“These huge ships are welcome but not at the expense of Aucklanders trying to go about their daily lives. Even now Queens wharf is a shambles for local commuters.when cruise ships are in . The ships need to be moored further away from Downtown Auckland . Wake up Council”
“Which part of"No More" does the Port Co, AK Council, Mayor and Officers and not understand?”
“Just appalled at Goff and his idiot team.”
“Best wishes guys thank you for your great work”
