Other Coastlines - Matapouri
Written by Radio New Zealand

View from Morrison house to the beach - this area is included in the proposed subdivision.

The Friends of Matapouri group is backing court action by Maori landowners in a bid to stop a coastal subdivision.

The land is at the north end of Matapouri Beach, on the east coast north of Whangarei.

Te Whanau o Rangi Whakaahu say they sold the Otito Block, to the Government in 1970 as a scenic reserve, in the belief that reserve status would safeguard it for all time.

However, they say part of the land was wrongly included in a freehold title by private survey 10 years ago.
