Park “ploughed” by contractors

Repairing the reserve could be an expensive business.

An Auckland Council contractor has been ordered to repair damage done to the reserve at Stanmore Bay, beside the Leisure Centre.

Council head of operational management Agnes McCormack says that due to an exceptionally wet end to winter, parks and reserves are more waterlogged than usual for this time of year.

“The damage to Stanmore Bay Reserve has been caused by a Council contractor undertaking routine mowing without taking this into account,” he says.

“We have informed the contractor involved that such damage is not acceptable and it will be repaired as soon as possible at their expense.”

The condition of the reserve was brought to Council’s attention after a Hibiscus Matters reader contacted the paper, saying that the reserve looked like it had been ploughed.
