Extra Shelly Bay hui to be held

4:34 pm on 28 January 2016

Strong interest in the proposed sale of iwi land at Wellington's Shelly Bay has led to more consultation hui nationwide.

Taranaki Whanui tribal members are expected to attend tonight's meeting in the capital to discuss the Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust's plan to sell its largest asset.

It was meant to be the final hui before voting closes next month, but the trust has announced another meeting will be held in Auckland next week and possibly another in the South Island, to meet demand.

Trust chief executive Jason Fox said says the interest was strong, with more than 100 people expected at tonight's meeting.

He said everyone was getting an opportunity to have their say but the outcome rested on whether there were enough votes in favour of the sale.
