Will it impact my community?
The 4-year agreement will see not just the removal of the offending trees, but also replanting with more suitable varieties of vegetation that do not impact on the transmission lines in their mature state. Transpower is contributing $10,000 per annum over the four years to the KCDC’s replanting programme, as well as being responsible for the removal work.
While it will initially involve some unsightly bare patches to the park, through the progressive planting programme, and the Kapiti Coast’s excellent climate we expect within 10-15 years the new portfolios of vegetation under the trees will be a vast improvement on what is there now.
