Wellington Mayor Andy Foster was photographed on Sunday helping pitch a tent in Shelly Bay.
The tent belonged to Anaru Mepham, from Mau Whenua, group opposing the controversial Shelly Bay development. Mepham described himself as a sentry for protesters who are standing by to join him if the bulldozers moved in.
Wellington City Council earlier this month voted nine votes to six to sell and lease its land at Shelly Bay to Shelly Bay Taikuru, owned by developer Ian Cassels and his partner.
Foster campaigned on the promise to stop the development, which is also opposed by Sir Peter Jackson.

This weeks story is about an ex SPCA pet called Churchill, who found a new home with his new mum Danni.
"We adopted Churchill back in November and he has been an absolute darling! He settled in really well. He loves a lot of attention, which is great because I mostly work from home, so he is basically my new best friend. We are really pleased to have him in our family."
I want to make a honey extractor which requires using Stainless Steel. I have a MIG welder but not a TIG. Wondered if there is anyone out there willing to do the job or teach me how and possibly the use of their TIG. (will pay) I have TIG welded Aluminium and can Oxy Acetylene weld so have the basic skills.
