One interpretation could be: "When does the protection of native planting on reserve land that is subsequently restricted by fencing, over-ride the rights of use by the very public that the reserve land is intended to be for the enjoyment of?
The article is also interesting in that it reports the differing views of two MP's and uses their respective arguments as part of the debate. Nice.
And just because the fence - and "protected" land - is adjoining a billionaires new digs; and just because a certain ex-PM who enjoys golf and has played a round to two with Barrack Obama plays there; and just because the land has restricted access... ....does not mean much at all.
The land is still a Reserve, and still owned by the Crown, and managed by the Department of Conservation. It is presumed that once the native plants become established, and the weeds get under control, then access to the reserve will be resumed.
Can someone please ensure a note is marked in their diaries for say 2029 to see if the restrictions still apply? Thanks.
