Verse of The Day
“Ko tenei hei whakaaro mo koutou, ko tera i a Karaiti Ihu: Ahakoa hoki i a ia te ahua o te Atua, kihai i meinga e ia te rite ki te Atua hei taonga kapo mai; Engari i mea i a ia ano kia poaha, ka mau ki te ahua o te pononga, ka meinga kia rite ki te tangata; A ka kitea nei tona ahua e rite ana ki to te tangata, ka whakapapaku ia i a ia, ka meinga kia ngohengohe ahakoa ki te mate, ae ra, ki te mate o te ripeka.” (Philippians 2:5-8)

Another 85ha would be a reserve, possibly under the control of the Queen Elizabeth II Trust.

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.
