Verse of The Day
“Tomokia ona tatau i runga i te whakawhetai, ona marae i runga i te whakamoemiti: whakawhetai atu ki a ia, whakapaingia tona ingoa. He pai hoki a Ihowa, pumau tonu tana mahi tohu: a kei tena whakatupuranga, kei tena whakatupuranga, tona pono.” (Psalm 100:4-5)

The council says about five million cubic metres of earthworks would be needed under Landco's plans compared with two million cubic metres under the council's structure plan.

This week Landco presents its appeal case to the court and its 26 witnesses get cross examined.

And 57 percent of the streams, 8.9km from 15.4km, in the area would be lost compared with 14 percent, 2.3km, under the council plan, says the council.

Significant archaeological sites would also be buried under the Landco proposal within land earmarked for development. Only a small representative sample would be saved, the council alleges.
