I think it's great that public walkways are allowed on privately owned land.
"Walkway closed 1 July to 30 September due to lambing.
Beach access safe 2 hrs either side of low tide.
This walkway follows an easement over private land including land once taken by the crown but returned to Ngati Tama (maori tribe) under the Ngati Tama Claims Settlement Act 2003.
Please respect the landowners' properties by keeping to the walkway.
Use the stiles and do not disturb stock or trap boxes."
