'Not the news I was hoping for': Muriwai residents given initial risk categories

From Checkpoint, 6:07 pm on 29 August 2023

After six months of waiting, dozens of Muriwai residents have been given the news no-one wanted.

Your property might be bought out, but it might not. Residents will tonight be able to vent their frustrations at a public meeting with council officials, after 42 of the 69 "high risk" Muriwai properties were left in limbo.

Category 3 means the property will be bought out, Category 2 means it can be saved with safety improvements.

The majority are in 2 slash 3 which means, well, who knows. Reporter Tom Taylor and camera operator Nick Monro have more.
