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)

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.

Mayor Wayne Brown says coastal access is a priority for the council, which is launching a ‘full on assault’ to counter the effects of increasing coastal development steadily eroding public access to the sea.

"We want to make sure there is public access to the beaches and the coast when new coastal subdivisions are implemented.

"People have told us this is what they want and we need to move now to set up resource consent criteria that will make it easier to provide for things like access roads, walkways, coastal reserves and esplanade strips," he says.
