Jeremy Smith reports four Kāpiti councillors have failed in a bid to delay or halt the controversial $4.5 million Te Uruhi Gateway project at Paraparaumu Beach.
Councillors Gwyn Compton, Martin Halliday, Jocelyn Prvanov, and Bernie Randall were behind the move at the latest Council meeting.
The Editor says he understands Cr Jackie Elliott left the meeting shortly before the vote.
Earlier, Cr Elliott described the project as a” juggernaut”. The council had already received a 2000-signature petition against the Gateway.
In February the councillors spent most of the day discussing the Gateway, which went through on a 7-4 vote.
