The AGM of the Association was held on June 12th at 7pm in the Northcote Point Senior Citizens’ House, corner Queen and Bartley Streets. See the minutes: NRA Minutes AGM 12JUNE2018
The May 8th Open Forum was devoted to hearing and questioning Shanan Halbert and Dan Bidois, the Labour and National candidates in the impending by-election. At short notice, about 30 residents and KLB Deputy Chair Danielle Grant attended. All were impressed by the calibre of the two young men vying to be Northcote’s next MP. Both spoke particularly about transport issues. Both want to hear from people and had been door-knocking. Both promised to liaise with Auckland Council about major issues of ordinary residents.
Meeting with KLB John Gillon The Chairman and Wayne Hale met with John in March at his request. He wanted opinion on the planned Jean Sampson Reserve toilets and Panuku Auckland’s wish to add the Rosie Bolt Reserve in Alfred Street to their For Sale list. He also told us that possible actions over the rising tide levels in Little Shoal Bay are being investigated and agreed to get action on the inadequate safety fencing outside the area fenced so well by NZTA on Stokes’ Point. John has taken over from Danielle Grant as Chair of KLB..
