Reply To: Technical Focus Group for the Proposed Regional Park at Cape Roger Curtis on Bow

Nick Heath

I took part in the session on 1 Mar. There was some NIMBY representation from local interests (e.g ferries will be too crowded, roads will be over-run, we’ll need a permit to walk on our local trails etc). There were other interest groups too – mainly conservation groups. Most responses from the planners were – “we’re in the early stages of planning.”

The main issue re: paddle-in is whether there is a suitable landing. I’m unsure and it seems they haven’t yet checked. So I offered to visit the site with a planner to determine what is feasible. We’ll see if they respond.

If any member wants to accompany us (assuming it happens) pl let me know.
