A Dunedin City Council decision on reopening a track from
Warrington to Blueskin Bay has been put off until the next
council meeting, on August 18, while legal advice is sought
on the matter.
The Waikouaiti Coast Community Board recently decided vehicle
access to the track should continue to be controlled,
following feedback from the local community, which was split
evenly between those wanting vehicle access, because they
believed there was a historical right of use, and those who
did not, mainly due to safety concerns.
Access to the short track, which starts at the corner of Bank
and Bay Rds, was blocked about 2008, an action that has been
a source of debate among the Warrington community since then.
