residents in Whangaehu Village, Manawatu, lost everything as a rampaging Whangaehu River flooded their homes
As history repeats, one wonders when will councils stop issuing consents for low lying housing? The outcomes of such events are well recorded in New Zealand. All that nice flat land in between the hills exists only because of violent flooding. Yets councils still let people live there.
At a Whangaehu Beach Rd farm Guy announced the Government would be contributing another $100,000 towards flood relief for farmers in the area
Meanwhile, the government continues to dole out corporate welfare.
