Trifecta for Te Ara Piko Pathway

The Te Ara Piko Pathway around the Pauatahanui Inlet is rapidly becoming a highly awarded project, with further recognition now in the Wellington airport Regional Community Awards.

The trifecta of awards began in 2011, with the Recreation Volunteers Award in the Encore Awards. In 2012 Porirua City Council received a highly commended award for Excellence in Compliance for Te Ara Piko. This award recognised Greater Wellington consent holders who exceeded their compliance requirements to reduce or avoid adverse effects on the environment.

In August this year, Plimmerton Rotary won the Heritage and Environment Category of the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for Te Ara Piko Pathway at a prestigious awards ceremony held at Pataka in Porirua.

The idea of having a pathway around the Pauatahanui Inlet was first mooted in 2000, but it was not until 2005 that any visible work was evident and the vision was named the Te Ara Piko Pathway. The project has been developed jointly between Plimmerton Rotary and the Porirua City Council.

Ron Lucus (read story below), President of Plimmerton Rotary said that it was "special" to have been nominated for this award by Porirua City and that, by receiving it, the work of both project partners was recognised.

This project is unique in that it is jointly undertaken by a territorial authority and Rotary with the objective of giving everyone access to a beautiful part of Porirua City for generations to come.

Eventually, the pathway will make its way around the Pauatahanui Inlet but already the completed sections are proving to be well used and as the pathway mellows, the attention paid to heritage and environmental values as recognised by the Wellington Airport Regional Community Award 2013 is becoming increasingly evident.
