Te Arai development update

We have heard from locals at Te Arai that there has been a lot of clearing in the forest in the area that the developer has proposed for the housing.

Trees have been marked for felling around the wetlands area which was earmarked as a wildlife area as part of the agreement. It appears to them that the developer is assured that the proposal is going ahead. People who live nearby can hear the machines working and local chat is that the development is definitely going ahead and that the developer is entitled to allow for 44-46 houses no matter what.

We have have also heard from various other sources in Auckland, people who are in finance and property that it is going ahead. Only hearsay, we know, but in our experience these people seem to have the inside running on these things.
