On 28th June 2017 this National-led government passed the
Point England Development Enabling Act 2017 into law
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?

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.
