Reprieve for lessees of trust land

8:59 am on 21 September 2010

There's a reprieve for lessees of Te Arawa Lakes Trust land in Little Waihi near Maketu.

Earlier this year the trust served eviction notices on about 30 waterfront houses in the Bay of Plenty settlement because of concerns about effluent leeching into the estuary.

Trust chair Toby Curtis says the notices won't be enforced until all other options are explored.

He told Waatea News a sewage treatment plant which gained resource consent last month, may resolve some of the problems.
