The southern most end of the Motutere Bay Recreation Reserve where it meets the DoC Mission Bay Reserve, is an area in TDC management. Last year it was left unmown and gorse and weeds have regenerate on embankment opp. Mission Bay Rd to the south end. Up to 2011 TDC progressively brought this area of weed infested embankment into an easily managed state, It started progressively replanting it. Using donated funds by an estate beneficiary a track was established along it and a memorial seat placed on it. The area was left unkempt last year, weeds are becoming established, gorse broom and other weeds now returning. It's a shame to see progressive betterments of an area being neglected. At the least the area could be mowed regularly. The area was even mowed easily once a year - embankment and all by a large tractor with good wide wheels - he just drove it sideways along the embankment slope - took less than 30 min to do. Jamie Gainsford knows the area and how it was maintained. Yu haven't done anything and more than that you refuse to communicate on it truthfully or to the complainant. Its bad service and management

Has the long grass been mown? The TDC mower goes out to Motutere Reserve regularly so why not do the area properly at the southern most end. DoC has done their part up to the TDC boundary, and TDC should attend to it's part as it once did. TDC mow's non-TDC areas on the eastern lakeshore whereas this area is a TDC managed lakeshore reserve. Mowing will lessen summer fire hazard from long grass, provide an area for recreation access to the lake and prevent the shoreline becoming re-vegetated with weeds such as broom and blackberry as once existed there.
