Use of the League Field
In 2007 the Motor Caravan Association (MCA) made application to the Gisborne District Council (GDC) to use the old Uawa league Field located on the corner of Solander and Furneaux Streets (opposite the Uawa river mouth) as a stop over (up to 2 nights at a time) for its\' members. Resource Consent was approved last week by the GDC, and now the MCA will be seeking a land use proposal followed by lease negotiation with the GDC. Many members in the Uawa community are only just hearing about the MCA proposal and are not happy that a community resource could be potentially granted for exclusive use to an organisation that does not belong to the Uawa community. Furthermore, there are already 3 exisiting campsites in Uawa, one of which is free. This petition, seeks to engage Uawa community thoughts and comments on the MCA proposal and application to council to utilise the old Uawa league Field. This information will be forwarded to the Gisborne Council which we hope they will take serious note of in their decision making processes.
