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.
