Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

Plans to extract thousands of cubic metres of sand from the Matapouri estuary have been given the green light, albeit with a raft of conditions.

The decision by Northland Regional Council has residents fuming and they haven't ruled out the possibility of appealing.

Marine biologist Lew Ritchie described the decision as "terrible".

"Nothing is safe in Northland. The decision-makers don't have an idea of what Northland is."
