KOROKORO ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP

KEG supports and encourages a range of worthwhile community environmental initiatives.

  • We make and maintain bush and hilltop walking tracks such as O'Donahoos and Puketirotiro.
  • We restore and sustain bush reserves by weeding, planting and pest control.
  • We encourage recycling and environmental sustainability in our area.
  • We work with the Greater Wellington Regional Council on pest monitoring in the Korokoro Valley.
  • We make constructive submissions for HCC Long Term Community Plan to get funding for safer roads and other environmental initiatives.
  • We have lobbied for visual and ecological improvements such as felling Galbraith's Gully pines.
  • We negotiate with developers to aim for well-planned sub-divisions, e.g. by providing for walking access to Korokoro Valley.
  • We lead community opposition to the proposed Petone Grenada link road which could destroy the Korokoro Valley environment.
    • We contribute to better planning for Korokoro by liaising with local and regional councils.
    • We keep in touch with other community and environmental groups.
