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)

Kahu Sutherland

Taking a stand on the right for people to drive on Whangarei’s beaches has landed Whangarei deputy mayor Kahu Sutherland in hot water with the community.

The Whangarei District Council passed its new vehicles on beaches bylaw last Wednesday, allowing fines of up to $20,000 for beach drivers who are dangerous or irresponsible.

The bylaw also introduces safe zones where vehicles are not allowed.

But at the full council meeting Mr Sutherland suggested an amendment to ensure no more safe zones would be introduced

A 2160-signature petition organised by the Bream Bay Coastal Care Trust and Northern Forest and Bird calls for three more safe zones – north of the Ruakaka River, outside Uretiti campground and the wildlife refuge at Waipu River.
