puts golf club plan on hold
A bid to return the control of land used by a golf club to its original Māori owners has put a co-management plan on hold in New Plymouth.
The land was previously Native Reserve land and kaumātua Peter Moeahu says the New Plymouth District Council should return it to mana whenua via a lease for one dollar a year.
“The land was stolen from us, it can be returned by way of the lease,” Moeahu told the council’s partnership committee, Te Huinga Taumatua.
His proposed 21-year lease would include a guarantee that the Fitzroy Golf Club retain access for at least 15 years.
