Thank goodness for the Resource Management Act

Without the RMA we would actually be permitted to put stuff on a fence. Now that's a horrific thought!

That means after six years the bra fence in Cardrona Valley will now need resource consent.

Thousands of people have stopped to take photos and add to the bras since they started mysteriously appearing. But there've also been complaints that the fence is scruffy and a distraction to drivers.

The owner says following the legal ruling he'll apply to the Queenstown Council for consent, but he says he will also check that locals are still happy with the fence.

Gooner, you have illustrated all things wrong with the RMA and the mis-interpretation of District Plans. Bras are not a “sign”. Whoever owns that fence should ignore the interference, keep hanging bras and keep up that good work. That story is a load of crap. What next, a consent needed to hang out one's delicates on a clothesline? After all that is the next logical step, taniwha’s excepted of course, cause they are “special” ;). Spare us. It’s a crock of shit, but the fact that a story like this gets mileage confirms that the RMA is in need of some serious reform.
