Save East Harbour Regional Park from developers

Two large parts of East Harbour Regional Park in Lower Hutt have had the reservation status removed.  One of the parts has had a large area zoned 'Hill Residential' which allows urban development.  The areas in question are the two large areas in orange on the map with this petition.

Hutt CIty Council has a poor record looking after reserves.  On the western hills of the Hutt they sold off many reserves to allow clearance and development.

The parts of the park that have lost the protection are covered in mature native forest.  They are an important part of the landscape above the harbour and above Wainuiomata.

This petition asks for permanent protection for the native forest and asks the Minister of Conservation to step in and acquire the land for inclusion in the conservation estate.
