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)

Other Coastlines - Te Arai / Mangawhai

Te Arai Beach will become a coastal park if the iwi gets its way. Photo / Northern Advocate

The Northland iwi behind a development near Mangawhai has its fingers crossed that slashing the proposed number of homes will sway the Rodney District Council in its favour.

Te Arai Coastal Lands Trust has already applied twice for permission for the development, just south of Mangawhai - now it has cut the number of houses from 850 to 180, hoping it will be a case of third time lucky.

The trust, a joint venture between local iwi Te Uri o Hau and Queenstown developer New Zealand Land Trust, proposes creating a coastal park and building a resort called Te Arai Park in the centre of Mangawhai North Forest.

"The amount of effort they've put into the environment is more than we've seen with any other developments in Northland. (DoC)"

The plan would see the beachfront, 5km either side of Te Arai Point, turned into a coastal park with a public camping ground. Te Arai Park would include a boutique thermal spa resort, nine-hole golf course, visitor facilities and homes.

A public trail network would also be built in the forest.
