A tale of two currents

Reports from the landscape consultants commissioned by Westpower and DOC agree that Morgan Gorge qualifies as an outstanding natural feature, within the broader outstanding natural landscape of the upper Waitaha catchment, on account of its “exceptional biophysical and perceptual values”. Deliberation then centres on how much modification an outstanding feature can stand before it loses its “outstandingness”.
At issue is whether installing industrial structures at the entrance to Morgan Gorge necessarily reduces the outstandingness of the gorge itself. Perhaps it doesn’t. Would a shipping container dropped on your driveway necessarily diminish your enjoyment of the flowers in your garden?
