Campaigners against Waiheke’s Kennedy Point marina have had their last-ditch appeal rejected by the Supreme Court, Stuff reports. Save Kennedy Point (SKP) campaigners challenged New Zealand’s highest court on the grounds it had made a mistake when it rejected their bid to appeal the marina consent granted by the High Court. Opponents to the marina said the court made a “glaringly obvious” error by saying they had always had the chance to bring forward cultural evidence. However, on Wednesday, the court acknowledged a partial error, accepting SKP had called evidence from representatives of Waiheke’s Piritahi Marae on harmful cultural effects.
