Auckland mayoral candidate Phil Goff is eyeing the Remuera Golf Course as a possible site for thousands of new houses.
He wants the sale of the Auckland Council-owned land to be discussed and he doesn’t care that the Prime Minister plays there.
‘That fact that John Key is an honorary member doesn’t exclude the golf course [sale] from scrutiny.
If you are looking at assets which return almost nothing to the ratepayer this is one’ Mr Goff said.
‘The public doesn’t have access to it. We’re under pressure to sell assets from central Government so we have to start looking at this. It’s certainly an option we have to start looking at’
