I certainly agree with point 1. The main reason I put this post up was to get something 'on the record' about such activities, particularly so that the members of COG (I know of at least 2) attending the Round Table have some evidence to quote. I was also hoping to encourage readers of the chatline to report such goings on as trailbikes to the authorities: whoever is responsible can't react if they aren't told.
WRT point 2, I merely reported what I was told. It was consistent with previous dealings I have had with CNP.
WRT to point 3, I have some sympathy with yourpoint. However apart from preventing persons laden with with a pair of 8x30s, a tripod, videocamera and full set of HANZAB from parking adjacent to Ardea hide - and I can see that walking in that condition could be an issue - it is probably not feasible to block the area off. I suspect that blocking the carpark would merely move the car burning problem 10m to Dairy Road itself. Trying to block trailbikes would mean excluding pushbikes as well, and like it or not the bike path through the area is well used.
My own solution would be to provide additional Ranger resources to CNP so that they are able to actually patrol the area effectively: at least during daylight hours. It seems at the moment that the Government will happily spend money on flashy new signs but they are very loathe to put anything into hiring additional staff.
