Public submissions are open on a proposed deal allowing those who contributed $50,000 each towards securing the Baigent Reserve on the Kina Peninsula for public use to build boatsheds there.
The five groups of contributors are Kevin and Julia Armstrong, B and S Miller trustees of Shelley Miller, Nigel McFadden and Geoff Milnes, the Woodlands Family Trust of William Luff and Ross McKechnie, and David and Maryann Easton and Brian Rhoades.
The purchase of the 10.7 hectare reserve was in September when $745,500 - made up of $413,000 from 140 families in the Tasman community and $332,500 contributed from Tasman District Council - was paid to Carter Holt Harvey for the land. Consultation through Tasman District Council closes on March 21.
