The Papakāinga Plan Change Hearings for Whangarei District Council (WDC) will be held at Toll Stadium on Monday 21 November. The Plan change has been some years in the making with hapū and iwi all contributing to make WDC policy more workable for Maori land owners to complete housing projects and papakāinga.
There has been a lot of resistance in submissions in the lead up to hearings and we encourage Māori land owners and hapū to attend in support of those that are presenting.
