Verse of The Day
“Kia mahara ehara nga mea pirau, te hiriwa, te koura, i te utu mo koutou, i puta mai ai i a koutou ritenga tekateka i whakarerea mai e o koutou matua; Engari he toto utu nui me te mea no te reme kohakore, pokekore, ara no te Karaiti.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)

Protesters are settling in for what could be a long stay at the proposed Whangamata marina but the developer says the project will begin within a month.

Work on the $20 million, 205-berth marina in the Moanaanuanu Estuary was supposed to have started on Tuesday but a request from the Whangamata Marina Society to change its leasing arrangements with the Thames Coromandel District Council has stalled the development.

The marina society wants to reduce the council-owned land it is leasing to a 550sq m lot, down from its original proposal of 1.3ha.

But the council has deferred its decision on this for an extraordinary meeting of council which could be a few weeks away.

Meanwhile, a low-key cross-section of about 30 hapu members, surfers, boaties and other locals from the Whangamata community yesterday flew flags and banners as they continued their 15-year opposition to the proposed marina at the site on Hetherington Rd.
