the hedge now

This Joel Maxwell story on the stuff site gives the events and the pic will have been taken later in the day.  The artist’s impression that the council supplied earlier (presumably what it spent $15,000 with the consultants on) showed a fence in a bit from the curb to the height of the cut, and this certainly needs to be put in place if it is going to look attractive again.

The issue generated debate on the Kapiti Coast Facebook page yesterday, with the majority liking the hedge as it was, although it also had its detractors — each to their own.

What we don’t like at all is the way the whole issue was handled; it’s clear that the council had made its mind up very early in the episode and engaged in various machinations to have its way, see the post from Tuesday.
