  • Just a another ploy to indicate something being done for climate change. The person in job will have frustrating time if they ate conscientious. Why did TDC allow the trees in Motueka to be removed in the name of' traffic safety'?


    • Hi Christine and thanks for your comment. We always appreicate our members havin their 'greenwashing radars' up and ready to speak truth to power. In this instance, we would rather see climate change policy advisors holding positions at council than not have anyone at all.  I understand your frustration about the trees.... it's always sad to see trees being removed but I hope you can gain comfort from the multiple planting and habitat restoration projects that are going on in our region, often supported by TDC and from the knowledge that TDC are wholly supportive of the work of the Forum. 

      There's currently a transport survey you might be interested in looking at. There would be room to note your observation about the trees.

      Thanks again for your comment.
