WELLYWOOD SIGN MUST NOT GO UP SAYS BRYAN PEPPERELL- Wellington City Council's rep on the Airport company is Deputy Mayor Ian McKinnon and for his representation on behalf of the ratepayers he receives an extra $40,000.

In 2000 I began one of my longest political battles . Yesterday it finished in the Environment Court with a ruling that the South Coast is not an appropriate place for an Aquarium. In that time I was supported only by Cr David Zwartz. In 2004 I was joined by Cr Jack Ruben in my opposition. This proposal divided the community. While the political battle was raging and we were overwhelmed by a developer friendly Council, Save Te Rae Kai Hau Point was formed. It was this group that in the end won the day.
