A VKK representative met with Council representatives in August 2017 and resolved to follow up with a public meeting on the issue. However, there was no further response from Council...

In the July newsletter sent out to ratepayers along with rates demands, it was s...

There has been a burst of media releases from the Far North District Council over the last few days starting with an announcement that the new Kerikeri Sewage System has been delayed until July 2020. No doubt this will not please those who have built in anticipation of connecting earlier.
