Give it to the Crown
It is a shame that a few of the locals seem to think that they own the local land and that they need to voice their opinion in the wider community.
I get it that there is an emotional attachment to the land but times have changed because of the compensation that was accepted as a way forward.
Then you get another group of hopefuls thinking that they can claim the land to exercise their recreational activities and assume that it is for all New Zealanders. But in reality, they are just as bad as the first group. NZ First appeal to me because the land needs to be owned by all New Zealanders,
