Other Coastlines - Coromandel
Written by Sue Ingram, Insight, Radio NZ National   
Friday, 30 April 2010

Sunday, 2 May, 2010 (duration: 27′45″)

Insight asks whether coastal areas are being destroyed by ever-creeping housing development.

The economic recovery is tipped to renew rampant development of New Zealand's coast.

Few areas of the coastline are protected and in many regions council policy appears to be at odds with the concerns of locals.

Few areas of the coastline are protected and in many regions council policy appears to be at odds with the concerns of locals.

New Chum's Beach in Coromandel (pictured below) is just one example. Here a developer wants to build more than a dozen houses amid outrage from those who don't want any kind of building to spoil the pristine beach.

In other areas large sub-divisions are threatening to dominate traditional bach settlements, while apartment blocks are also becoming a feature.

In this programme Sue Ingram visits Coromandel and asks what regulations are in place to restrain coastal development and should they be tightened up?
