With sweeping beaches, hidden caves, seals, penguins and albatross - we think this must be the most underrated stretch of New Zealand. Have you been? Read more on the link below.
The cost of maintaining and repairing Rocks Road is currently met by the government through NZTA funding. Moving SH6 from there will mean that any future costs for repairing and maintaining this route will be met by Nelson City Council ratepayers. This will likely bring a large increase in their annual rates, and of course rents for those renting. Let all those supporting the Inland Route Southern Link option declare which local council they pay rates to, and that they support any rates increase for Nelson residents so we can see how vested their support really is. I would also invite Nick Smith’s comments on New Zealand being a signatory to a United Nations Treaty on Environmental Protection that prohibits moving a source of pollution from one urban population to another, which the Southern Link proposal would certainly do. Is he aware of this and is he advocating that New Zealand pull out of this treaty?
