    Katikati resident upset bypass not a shovel-ready project

    Katikati resident upset bypass not a shovel-ready project

    A long-time campaigner is bewildered that the forever-promised Katikati bypass has not made the cut for a shovel-ready project.
    The Western Bay of Plenty District Council has had success in getting most of its proposed projects for the urgent funding through to the next stage - but not the bypass.
    State Highway 2 cuts right through the middle of the town - effectively destroying its heart, says Katikati Taiao chairwoman Jenny Hobbs.
    She speaks to Corin Dann.

    Discover Waitomo given $4m in funding

    There's been good news and bad for key players in the tourism sector this week. The government has announced support for strategic tourist assets.
    It will provide $4m to Discover Waitomo and up to $20.2m for New Zealand's 31 regional tourism organisations.
    Meanwhile, early modelling from Infometrics shows the GDP of tourism hotspot Queenstown declining by almost a quarter and close to 8000 jobs being lost in the coming year.
    Grant Webster is chief executive of Tourism Holdings, which owns Discover Waitomo.
    He's also co-chair of a new public-private tourism taskforce.
    He speaks to Kim Hill.

    Gisborne iwi welcomes consultation on Endeavour replicas

    Gisborne iwi welcomes consultation on Endeavour replicas

    Gisborne iwi Rongowhakaata is welcoming the opportunity to have their say on the instalment of two new replicas of Captain Cook's ship the Endeavour in the city.
    The district council came under fire last week for voting 11 to 3 in favour of installing the replicas without any public consultation, and have since decided to revoke their decision.
    A spokesperson for Rongowhakaata, Amohaere Houkamau, says the Mayor has met with local iwi to apologise.
    She told RNZ reporter Te Aniwa Hurihanganui she was shocked when she found out iwi initially were not going to be consulted, but is pleased the council has had a change of heart.

    Cameras on fishing boats quietly delayed to 2021

    Cameras on fishing boats quietly delayed to 2021

    The introduction of cameras on commercial fishing boats has been delayed for 15 months, with no explanation.
    In 2017 the then National Government introduced legislation requiring cameras, but it has since been repeatedly delayed by the Labour-led coalition government.
    Cameras were supposed to be on board the boats from July the first, but this week a regulation was quietly introduced to parliament, pushing the date back to October, 2021.
    National Party spokesperson for Fisheries Ian McKelvie speaks to Kim Hill.
