'Keep Maymorn Green' protest picks up speed By COLIN WILLIAMS ' With 80 people speaking, it's a chance to go face to face [with councillors] and say how this affects them personally. ' Bob McLellan Key opponent organiser The first hearing of the massive public response to the city's plan for the long-term development of Maymorn kicks off on Tuesday. More than 430 submissions will be considered by city coun- cillors over several days before a crucial early December meeting when the controversial plan will be voted by councillors to con- tinue on to the formal planning stage or be killed off, as key opponent organiser Bob McLel- lan hopes. Really, December 8, after these hearings, is the key day for us and the council. It's an opportunity to have this killed off. But we'll see it though to the end if we have to,'' he said. He confirmed any final'' council go-ahead will be met with a challenge in the Environ- ment Court. There's a significant number of people in Upper Hutt who think there's something wrong with this. In the Environment Court it only takes one person with a good argument to kill it.'' Mr McLellan, a Mangaroa Valley resident, is one of 80 sub- mission writers who will take the option to speak directly to councillors in an effort to per- suade them to abandon an ambitious town planning project that has long been in council planning. The formal release of the Maymorn Structure Plan, in the first half of the year, revealed a project which could take 20 years to complete. It detailed a sustainable vill- age community'' of up to 1800 residences accommodating more than 4000 people for the rural valley, centred on Maymorn and Parkes Line roads. Mr McLellan, arguably the spearhead of the Keep Maymorn Green residents' opposition -- I'm just a name that seems to have got out there'' -- says next week's hearings are a crucial next phase in the campaign. He is buoyed by the effort that went into the submissions, both in their number and their weight of argument. It was a relatively short space of time to get people organised and to give them an understanding of the [Maymorn] plan and the council process,'' he says. Several submissions were sent to the council in template form, as drafted by the Keep Maymorn Green group. The value of this cannot be diminished because of this in any way,'' Mr McLellan says. Using the template just shows people are not familiar with the process but that they are concerned enough to do something about it.'' After the submission close-off date, which itself was extended by three weeks, things have been relatively quiet. What happens is people have their own lives to get on with,'' Mr McLellan says. In recent weeks the Keep Maymorn Green group has been trying to contact the submitters opting to speak to the council to let them know how the hearing will operate. With 80 people speaking it's a chance to go face to face [with councillors] and say how this affects them personally. A lot are saying they haven't done anything like this before, but What can I do?'. We've been trying to contact people to give them assistance, just in their speaking. We are just talking to them about the process, just telling them about the environment they will be in at the council chambers and telling them that the councillors are normal Upper Hutt people and are pretty receptive.'' Mr McLellan says his group has made an effort to speak to individual councillors. They have been receptive but, of course, without giving any commitments and saying they have to read and hear all the submissions . . . We do have a good case and we just have to hope we get the decision we want.''
