Statement Published: No Financial Interests In Hood Aerodrome Decision

A member of the public raised concerns with us that Mayor Lyn Patterson and Councillor Tina Nixon of Masterton District Council each had a financial interest in a decision to adopt a plan for Hood Aerodrome and should not have participated in the discussions and voting.

We were asked to look into this. After considering the information we needed, we do not consider they had a financial interest. We've published a statement on our website about our decision: https://oag.parliament.nz/2022/hood-aerodrome
