I don't actually understand this story, and it is in relation to the Mangawhai wastewater scheme, but the High Court has found:

 

Justice Ailsa Duffy has now ruled the rates levied by the Northland Regional Council via the Kaipara District Council rate demands were invalid.

This may well have very substantial implications for the bio-security charge, and be a major piece of case law that the original poster covers in regards to the mariners questioning the legality of NRC levying this charge.

 

It would be really nice to see a bureaucracy get a Royal Rogering from the High Court, especially following the complete sham consultation process they carried out. How many opposing submissions did they get?

Using NRC logic all those who didn't respond to the poll were deemed to be in favour of the levy, using their logic wouldn't that mean that Knotme's non voting party could win the election.

Something I didn't know... "Marsden Cove Marina, which is half-owned by the regional council..."

 

No doubt ratepayers in Kerikeri, Mangonui, Kaikohe and Kaitaia are just thrilled.

I was going to ask what a Regional Council is doing owning a marina, then remember that Far North Holdings Limited holey owns Opua Marina, who are in on the legal action. FNHL is holey owned by Far North District Council...

 

I wonder if there is much of a pissing match going on in Local Government up North?

Good to see they are focused on good outcomes for their communities, rather than expanding their budgets and empires.

"The Kerikeri Cruising Club are leading the fight against a biosecurity charge that could have implications for the rest of the country."
