Auckland iwi offers to buy part of waterfront if port goes

From Checkpoint, 6:06 pm on 3 December 2019

An Auckland iwi is putting its hand up to buy part of the city's waterfront if Ports of Auckland operations are moved to Northland.

On Tuesday Ngāti Whatua Orākei released its plans to develop almost 100 hectares of land including the Ports of Auckland and Quay Park.

The central Auckland hapū is welcoming talk of the ports move - and is looking to form an iwi consortium to buy the land if it comes up for sale.

John Boynton has more.
