Other Coastlines - The Rest
Written by The Bay Chronicle   
Thursday, 27 March 2008

A $4 million fund for the purchase of coastal land during the next five years has been set up by the Far North District Council to improve public access to the coast.

The council is also strengthening its coastal access resource consent conditions as part of an effort to make the district’s beaches more accessible for everyone.
