    A group that's been trying to get back a piece of Maori land in south Auckland says the finer details of an agreement are being ironed out

    A group that's been trying to get back a piece of Maori land in south Auckland says the finer details of an agreement are being ironed out


    Fletcher Building was planning to build hundreds of homes at Ihumatao but protesters have been occupying the land.

    Save Our Unique Landscape spokeswoman Pania Newton says there's been word about a deal but she can't speak about it.

    She's happy with the progress so far.

    Newton has faith in the Kingitangi who's supporting the group through the progress and is hoping everything will be finalised soon.

    She's fairly confident the land will be returned to a trust that would manage the land appropriately.

    She thinks Fletcher Building will be appropriately compensated for the land but doesn't know how much money is involved.
