Verse of The Day
“Kahore he mataku i roto i te aroha: engari ka maka te mataku ki waho e te aroha ina tino rite; no te mea he mamae to te mataku. Ko te tangata hoki e mataku ana, kahore ia i tino rite i roto i te aroha.” (1 John 4:18)

Written by Auckland Regional Council   
Tuesday, 17 June 2008

27 February 2007: The Auckland Regional Council (ARC) this evening resolved to express its desire to acquire land at Stedfast Park, Piha, under the Public Works Act 1981. This means that the ARC will enter into negotiations with the vendor to agree on a fair and reasonable price.

The 8.22 hectare property has been put up for sale by way of tender by the Boys’ Brigade Northern Regional Trust. For many years it has been used as an outdoor education facility.

Stedfast Park is located in the Piha catchment at the end of Glen Esk Road, surrounded on three sides by Waitakere Ranges Regional Parkland.

Essentially, we are looking for a fair deal for the wider public good

ARC Chairman Michael Lee says, “This Council is in a race against time to secure valuable open space for present and future generations of Aucklanders.

“We are entering into this process with the purpose of negotiating a fair and reasonable price – mindful that we must act prudently with public funds. Essentially, we are looking for a fair deal for the wider public good,” he says.
