Campaigners against a Waiheke marina lost their battle after the Supreme Court rejected their bid to appeal the consent granted by the High Court, Stuff reports. Since 2017, Save Kennedy Point (SKP) has been fighting plans for a marina at Pūtiki Bay, seeing its battle through the Environment Court, High Court and Court of Appeal. SKP’s request for a rehearing was based on the argument that mana whenua of Waiheke Island had not been appropriately heard from because Ngāti Pāoa Trust Board was not consulted.
