Verse of The Day
“U tonu hoki toku whakaaro, e kore te mate, te ora ranei, e kore nga anahera, nga rangatiratanga ranei, e kore nga mea onaianei, e kore nga mea e puta mai a mua, e kore nga mana, E kore te tiketike, e kore te hohonu, e kore tetahi atu mea hanga, e kaha ki te momotu i a tatou i te aroha o te Atua, i tera i roto nei i a Karaiti Ihu, i to tatou Ariki.” (Romans 8:38-39)

The company is detailing its plans to local residents and members of the Maori community at the Ngunguru Hall today and tomorrow.

But the project was inadvertently posted on its website on Tuesday, and the size of the scheme has angered opponents of sandspit development.
