Claims About High Country Privatisation By Eckhoff

Response To Claims About High Country Privatisation By Gerry Eckhoff MP

"It's unfortunate that Mr Eckhoff has resorted to distortion in his statement. He knows full well that the land in question is Crown owned land that is administered by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) on behalf of all New Zealanders," said Otago/Southland regional field officer Sue Maturin.

"An opportunity to protect this publicly owned land along 35 kilometres of Wanaka lakeshore for the benefit of all New Zealanders has been lost as the land is now to be locked up in private ownership," she said.
