It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

Kaitaia Airport is the key.

Some time ago, Carrington Resort commissioned a study to find the most appropriate place to build an international airport in the Far North. The study identified Kaitaia as the only place where an international would be feasible. The Kaitaia Airport is held in Trust by the Crown and leased to Far North Holdings and the lease expired last year. Far North Holdings has been trying to get a 35 year lease on the airport but has been stalled because of Treaty Negotiations with the Iwi who lay claim to the land.

There are a group of people interested in a huge Far North development scheme for the pristine stretch of coastline called '90 Mile Beach. The Airport is the Key.

This is very deep indeed. And there is so much more to come....
