Verse of The Day
“A ka mea a Meri, Ka whakanui toku wairua i te Ariki, E hari ana toku wairua ki te Atua, ki toku Kaiwhakaora; He nui hoki nga mahi a te Mea Kaha ki ahau; he tapu hoki tona ingoa.” (Luke 1:46-47, 49)

The Environmental Defence Society (EDS) has won the final stage of a case against a council that failed to protect the outstanding landscapes in its district.

The Environment Court has just released a direction relating to the landscape chapter of the Kaipara District Council Plan - which consists of blank pages.

"EDS is very pleased with the Court's direction," said EDS Chairman Gary Taylor.
