    Well said Justin and good luck in your new position. With some of the “grandstanders” now gone, it should be a much happier and less divisive council.
    A little “deja vu” with the suggestion of a flying fox – back in November 2002 the plan prepared by Rachel Hughes (one of five finalists for designing Waitangi Park) was the most popular and included a “flying fox.” Perhaps it could be could be created there, as the play area is very small and not over the harbour. Let’s cater for the young children and leave the Diving Platform for the big kids. If any doubt, I recommend a trip to Avalon Park in Lower Hutt which has a magnificent play area which includes a flying fox.

    And here’s what Justin Lester said in August last year about the proposal for a flyover alongside the Basin Reserve;
    I don’t believe a flyover is appropriate for this area, largely because of the ongoing visual impact it will have and will continue to oppose it strongly for this reason. It’s my opinion that it would be a backwards step not only for the area, but also the city generally because of wider implications about what is acceptable design. I believe the decision will be regretted if it does go ahead.

    Excellent Justin! The new council has a right mixture of experience, dynamism and new faces and I feel confident it will be easier to get this decided and implemented.

    I look forward to seeing Justin in action (actually the entire new council).
