Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

Articles - LandCo Proposal
Written by Mike Dinsdale, The Northern Advocate   
Monday, 20 November 2006

Development plans for Ngunguru Sandspit should be presented to the public at three meetings planned for this month.

Landco, which owns the 151-hectare spit, has arranged three "drop in" events for November 30, December 1 and 2 at the Ngunguru Memorial Hall to outline its "initial concept plans" for the peninsula.

Landco communications manager George Hulbert would not reveal what those plans were until then. The Northern Advocate revealed in August that Landco had plans for up to 400 sections with a 50ha reserve at the northern tip of the sandspit.

Mr Hulbert said the plan had moved on since that stage.

"It is at this early stage of planning, before we get into the legal Resource Management Act processes, that there is time to talk and listen to local people. Therefore, we have made a commitment to consider what people say before plans are finalised and applications are lodged," he said.

He expected a lot of interest in the meetings from Tutukaka Coast residents and the company was looking forward to feedback.

Landco accepted there were people who would be totally opposed to any development on the sandspit. "But there are others who accept there will be some development and want to ensure it is sensitive to the environment and wider community," Mr Hulbert said.
