What’s on Today?

Access to The Mall in Pilot Bay will be restricted today as what is expected to be the largest protest in Pilot Bay gets underway at 7am.

The event is a continuation of a Ngai Te Rangi-led protest at Treaty Minister Chris Finlayson’s refusal to change his mind about handing over Tauranga Moana property and political rights to Hauraki iwi.

Access to The Mall from Commons Ave to the Adams Ace roundabout will be restricted from now until about 5pm.
