COLLECTORS NEEDED! 3232964AB Farmer-friendly rules added New west coast future zoning and environ- mental protection rules aim to be user friendly for farmers. Decreasing the size of the west coast policy area and clarification on permitted activity were among planned changes announced by Rodney District Coun- cil before it disbanded. It follows many of the 390 submissions made on the original proposal raising con- cerns that ordinary farming work like fenc- ing or making sheds would be impacted. A resource consent was required for all new buildings and the policy area included South Head Peninsula under the original rules. Only a small patch of the west coast and parts of the Kaipara Harbour coast margins are now affec- ted. Alterations to build- ings sized 50 square metres or less for the development of farm- ing like sheds are also permitted and stockyards have been clarified and are allowed. Rubbish collector: Muriwai-based council ranger Scott de Silva with an assortment of debris collected by four-wheel-drive participants in the beach clean-up. 4WD groups drive beach clean-up By RANI TIMOTI Preserving their play- ground rather than dam- aging it is the quest for a group of four-wheel-drive owners who regularly help in the annual Muriwai Beach clean-up. Members of several New Zealand Four Wheel Drive Association clubs joined large contin- gents from Auckland's Land Rover Owners and Auckland 4WD Club. Council Muriwai ran- ger Van Haresnape says the help is really appreciated. What they do is a well-oiled operation. We couldn't do the beach clean-up without them and they also know how to use their vehicles properly,'' he says. Less rubbish was found despite winter storms, but a large bin was still filled with assorted debris. Our members enjoy the annual effort to clear the flotsam and jetsam off the beach to improve its look and general safety for beachgoers,'' New Zealand Four Wheel Drive Association northern public relations officer and Auckland 4WD Club president Peter Vahry says. Participants swept the beach from the Coast Rd access up to the bombing range in under three hours with teams work- ing their 5km sectors. Afterwards, council staff whipped up a bar- becue in appreciation. Muriwai Beach is an important recreation venue for many Auck- landers and with its length, the ability to use vehicles on the beach is valued. The beach clean- up is one small way that the 4WD community can help to maintain the environment that we enjoy,'' Mr Vahry says. There are also plans next year to help council staff at Te Rau Puriri park on the South Kaipara Head to remove several kilometres of deer fencing.
