Landowners need to take control

LETTER

Re: Waipiro Bay leaseholders ‘blindsided’ by 400 percent hike, September 1 story.

Landowner shareholders on these block of lands where leases are paid should all come together and support our whanau in these situations, and stop their land being administered by an organisation like Te Tumu Paeroa. They don’t maintain the land and not all shareholders are getting a return on the land. This is happening here in Te Araroa as well.

We need to all agree as shareholders for Te Tumu Paeroa to pull out of managing and administering our land — leave our whanau alone, they are taking better care of the land as it is. It’s time that we as shareholders have our say and take control of what is rightfully ours.
