[NZCPR-Weekly] Tribal Control of the Coast

[NZCPR-Weekly] Tribal Control of the Coast

Dear NZCPR Reader,

This week…

This week we examine the concern that access to our beaches could be blocked if tribal groups gain control of the coast, our NZCPR Guest Commentator Frank Newman warns about the increasing use of rahui and the threat it poses to public access to the coast, and our poll asks whether you believe the coastal claims process as it stands is a barrier to those who wish to object to the claims that have been lodged.

Contact MPs…

If you share the concerns we raise in this newsletter, that the inadequacies of the coastal claims process are denying New Zealanders their right to natural justice, then please consider writing to the new Government to urge them to urgently change the system... The email addresses of all MPs can be found HERE.

Making a claim…

Until the Government steps up and improves the system, we suggest that people interested in opposing the claims should visit our NZCPR.com website HERE, where we have provided the information they will need.


As you are aware, to retain our independent voice, the NZCPR neither seeks nor receives government assistance, nor runs ads – instead, we depend on your goodwill and support. If you value our newsletter, but haven’t had the opportunity to support our crucial end of year fundraiser, it’s not too late - please click HERE to help.

Thank you for your interest and support.
