On 28th June 2017 this National-led government passed the

Point England Development Enabling Act 2017 into law

Send an email to the Hon Bill English PM to express your disappointment


Dear Prime Minister

Please understand that because National passed the Point England Development Enabling Act into law, any support I might have given National at election time, will be withdrawn.

Selling public open space, sports fields and an endangered bird sanctuary to build houses because you have sat on your hands for far too long is frankly, offensive. The location, timing, methods and lack of public consultation on this Bill have been undemocratic and the failure to consider future generations and the environment is short-sighted and indefensible.

I am talking with my family, friends and colleagues about why they shouldn’t support National because this sets an ugly precedent of what can be expected of National in the future.






Point England Reserve was given to the people of New Zealand for open space and recreation.

This National-led Government passed a law to sell the Sports Fields and Reserve Land at Point England without any public consultation.

The Point England Development Enabling Act 2017 overrides the Reserves Act that protected the Reserve and ignores the Auckland Council Plan that kept the Reserve safe from development.  This sets a political precedent to sell any other Reserve without consultation.

This is an attack on your right to have a say about what happens in your neighbourhood and to your parks.

It is election time this year. Before you vote ask yourself:

Do you want a government who ignores you, ignores the laws that are supposed to protect your rights to have a say and sells off your local parks?

As a city grows in population and brings inevitable intensification, local parks and reserves become even more important for the well-being of residents.

Unfortunately, the National Government does not share this view.

Local parks are up for grabs despite being the vital heart of communities and essential in creating liveable cities.

Should New Zealanders bulldoze their parks and sports fields forever to make way for housing developments?

We don’t think so.
