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)

Articles - LandCo Proposal
Written by Mike Dinsdale (Northern Advocate) New Zealand Herald   
Thursday, 30 November 2006

A developer plans to carve up Ngunguru Sandspit into 350 sections and an 85ha reserve.

Landco was supposed to reveal its plans at a news conference yesterday but inadvertently posted them on its website a day early.

It's just amazing they think they can get way with this. It is going to flood again. It's a low-lying, shifting sands area, and who's going to pay when it goes wrong - the ratepayer?

An angry Ngunguru Coast Action Group has vowed to fight the plans. Group spokeswoman Anna Murphy was "aghast" at the scale of the plans. Any development of the sandspit would be opposed as it was "too sensitive an area in every respect for development".

The plans include a 350-lot "coastal village" of about 1000 people covering 36ha, with buildings set back from the shore to reduce visual impact, and a large reserve at the spit's northern tip.

Landco said it would give more details about its plans today.
