Verse of The Day
“Kei te hunga e wehi ana i a ia te mea ngaro a Ihowa; a mana e whakakite ki a ratou tana kawenata. E tau tonu ana oku kanohi ki a Ihowa; mana hoki e unu ake oku waewae i te kupenga.” (Psalm 25:14-15)

The Maori Land Court has stymied plans to develop more than 300 sections on Northlandís Ngunguru sandspit.

The court has turned down an application by a company owned by the Todd family to declare Maori land a public road.

Ngunguru Coastal Investments Limited, a company run for Todd family interests by former Sky City boss Evan Davies, owns land on the sandspit, with access via a private road across several Maori land blocks.

Without admitting any development plans, NCIL asked the court to recommend it become a public road vested in the Whangarei District Council.

He also turned down NCILís bid to cancel a second private road which led to the back of its block.
