Council on death of Bruce Mansell

Council on death of Bruce Mansell

Bruce Mansell – A significant Kapiti businessman – says Mayor


Mayor Jenny Rowan has offered personal and community condolences to the family and friends of Coastlands co-founder Bruce Mansell.

She said the sudden death of Mr Mansell would be a shock to the Kapiti business Community and a big loss for his wide circle of family and friends.

Mayor Rowan said Bruce Mansell had made a significant contribution to the Kapiti community over the past 44 years and had worked with drive and dedication to develop and oversee Coastlandlands Shoppingtown, which is still the biggest business on the Coast with a combined turnover in excess of $275million annually.

“Bruce Mansell led the way for the introduction of weekend shopping in New Zealand and when Coastlands opened in 1969, it was nationally recognised as one of only two malls in the country open for weekend trade,” she said.

He had also built strong and positive relationships with the Ngahina Trust and worked closely with them over the years. In more recent years he has worked with the Ballinger family in the development of the Te Roto Industrial Estate.

Mayor Rowan said it was fortuitous that Mr Mansell had recently been inducted into the Business Hall of Fame and now stood alongside the 11 other laureates who had all made an enormous contribution to the development of Kapiti.

“It is really gratifying to know his contribution will live on through Coastlands’ investment as a naming rights sponsor in the new Aquatic Centre.

“Bruce should also be remembered for his contribution as a Justice of the Peace, a chartered accountant, a long serving Rotarian and former President of the Waikanae Rotary Club.

“I offer sincere condolences to the Mansell family in this time of loss.”

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
