A proposal to replace the decaying century-old pilot's wharf
at Aramoana has hit a snag, with a local conservation group
concerned a new wharf would scare off the New Zealand sea
lion population in the area.
A proposed residential development near Aramoana, in Dunedin,
has come under fire from neighbours and other opponents, as
developers seek to establish sites for three new homes in one
of the city's more sensitive areas.
Some time after Eva Helen Dickson's death, her son, Alistair,
brought the George Medal, awarded to her for bravery in the
Aramoana tragedy, into the Port Chalmers Museum and signed a
long-term loan agreement.
