Local residents are courting the capital Ani’s airport at the Environmental Court on what it is calling an aggressive and unstable expansion plan.
The group, known as the Guardian of the Bees, has filed an appeal against a recent permit notice from Wellington International Airport, which allows it to transform its eastern shoreline into green traffic. Doing.
Co-chairman Yvonne Weber said the airport’s plan is to remove the buffer area that exists between the airport and the community at Strathmore Park, “putting the largest jet on the bank of one of the poorest communities in Wellington.”
“Stratford Park is one of Wellington’s most socially and economically disadvantaged areas, and the worst-affected locals are the employers of the Koenig-aura, without sound and without fighting.

Koinga Ora Regional Director Greg Groofsky said it has 400 one to five bedroom homes in the Straitmore area. “Always bringing our customers is always our top priority.”
“Kanga Aura is aware that the airport’s expansion could be on the streets of the Straitmore community and we continue to engage with the airport to resolve it.
By 2040, Wellington Airport expects 12 million passengers to fly in and out each year – double the current figure.
The movement of airlines was estimated to increase by 50%, but future aircraft would be 20 to 30% more efficient.
Airport chief executive Steve Sanderson said the decision did not necessarily mean the expansion was imminent. “Our immediate priority is to manage our ongoing response to Code-19.
Gina Rayburn, General Manager of Corporate Affairs, said: “We respect the results of respect and the recommendations given by the commissioners.
“However, we think submitters have the right to appeal and that is something they have chosen to do. We will continue to work through the process as it meets the needs of the Wellington community.
The Guardian of the Bees is arguing that removing green space, owned by the rich Mauritius Golf Course, and noise will have a devastating impact on neighboring neighborhoods due to noise, dust and light pollution.
According to the group’s website, the appeal could cost up to $ 400,000, XNUMX dollars, and so the group was seeking donations from the public.
The website says, “We have already raised over $ 60,000 raised over 60% and we expect to receive $ 150,000 from the Ministry for Environmental Legal Assistance Funds.
Donations will be made to a senior barrister, court representative, a lawyer, investigators and expert witnesses.
