Residents opposed to a new footpath in Auckland’s St Heliers aren’t letting lockdown restrictions get in the way of halting work, Stuff reports. The project will see a new path laid through Vellenoweth Green, which locals claim will cut into the green space widely used by the community. About 10 people, wearing masks, turned up to voice their concerns on Thursday – despite level 3 lockdown rules which prevent outdoor gatherings of more than two households. “Our argument is there was no consultation,” said one resident. “We had no way of being involved in the decision-making of cutting up something that everyone loves and uses, for a path we don’t need.”
