High Court judge Ailsa Duffy has brought to an end an episode in the scrap over the secretively funded & heavily over cost Mangawhai Ecocare sewerage scheme.
Bayleys had a strong performance at its Total Property auction on Wednesday, selling 14 of the 23 properties on offer, including 4 of the 5 retail outlets in the new Grange development on the southern fringe of Warkworth.
The Supreme Court has declined the Mangawhai Ratepayers & Residents Association’s application for leave to appeal against the Court of Appeal’s dismissal of its claim against the Kaipara District Council.
The Auditor-general, Lyn Provost, has agreed to pay Kaipara District Council $5.375 million to settle their dispute over audit issues concerning the Mangawhai EcoCare community wastewater scheme.
The Mangawhai Ratepayers & Residents Association has been resoundingly defeated in its Appeal Court attempt to overcome the effect of validating legislation on illegal acts by the Kaipara District Council.
Kaipara District Council – run by Government-appointed commissioners since August 2012 – said today it would not take action against Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner Ltd over its involvement in the Mangawhai community wastewater scheme.
