    Chinese owner fights access

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/far...arms-nzs-image
    This is interesting the result will have a lot of implications for all.
    Did anybody on here use this access.
    Anything of note the article didnt cover.
    Note I have cut and past the title it isnt a personal comment on chinese.
    It is the issue of foreign ownership that isnt in the general public interest I think we need to keep abreast of.

    Providing public access was a condition of it being bought by an overseas operation, not rocket science, the contract hasn’t been honoured?

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    I'm not sure if I read it right but it sounds like they are using a public hut for thier own profit....can't see the need for mediation....access was part of the purchase agreement so it just needs to be enforced

    Used to go up there a lot before the station was sold. There was no legal access. It was a condition by the overseas investment office he agreed to and now hes trying to back out.
    Access is up the river most of the tourist walk is on the hills they only walk the river on the last day for about 2 hours. We used to drive up the river to the DOC land and no tourists complained.
    A lot of them liked to have a chat. The owner dosen't spend much time there.

    Exactly. Once up there I stopped a group of the farm's tourist/walkers from taking the wrong track and becoming lost. They greatly appreciated it.

    What part of this did he not read when signing the agreement?

    Hong-Kong based Eric Chun Yu Wong bought the sprawling $3.3 million Kawakawa Station, at Cape Palliser, in 2015. The Overseas Investment Office approved the sale - which was signed off by National government ministers - but imposed conditions around tramping access.

    Those conditions said the new owner must put in place access to the Aorangi Forest, as recommended by the Walking Access Commission. The forest park is home to the Putangirua Pinnacles, the eerie earth pillars featured in scenes in the film Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

    Those gutless bureaucrats need enforce the conditions in the contract and stop being soo PC . These overseas owners need a kick up the arse this sort of thing really pisses me off. Play by our rules or you can bugger off back to where you came from. Not PC? who cares. If we don't stand up for our rights of access then we will all wake up one day and it will all be gone.

    A few years ago we grazed cows there when I was managing a property just out of Martinborough.

    By now the owner will know how much money hes not making out of it. He might be happy to sell.

    If he reneges on the conditions he's agreed to, take it off him. Try taking the piss like that in China and see where it gets you.

    cant say im suprised, I used to go in there a bit but not for a long time. I really hope the contact is rigidly enforced- and as NZ and China are curently in the middle of a scedueled renegotiation of the trade agreement is especilly important to show tha NZ doesnt back down on enforcing agremments

    Good to see the Walking Commission trying to enforce it.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!
