Wairoa District Council Signage on Public Roads

Denys Caves [Mr] made this Official Information request to Wairoa District Council

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Wairoa District Council should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Denys Caves [Mr]

Dear Wairoa District Council,
WDC you have permitted Rocket Lab to erect a Trespass sign on a section of Public Rd ,Mahia East Coast Rd that continues beyond the section of Public Rd referred,where not only the Rocket Lab Trespass Sign is erected but also a Cattle Stop & Lockable Gate have been installed, preventing public access on this Public Rd that continues some distance , past this point to intersect with Tawapata Rd ,which then leads onto private land to the Rocket Lab Launch Site .
The 2008 Walking Access Act requires Local Authorities to erect signage on any Legal Public Road where any such gate crosses legal road .
However Wairoa District Council have permitted a private sign Trespassing Public from continuing along Mahia East Coast Rd beyond the cattlestop & lockable gate ,have not clearly indicated the exact surveyed boundary of this legal Rd or erected applicable OFFICIAL WDC SIGNAGE nor complied with the 2008 Walking Access Act .
PLEASE EXPLAIN THE REASONS FOR NON COMPLIANCE IN THESE RESPECTS
WHEN NZTA FUNDING HAS BEEN GRANTED.
Thank You ....
Yours Faithfully
Denys Caves
