Waiheke Island residents are annoyed two buildings are being put on historical land without resource consent being settled.
The prefabricated buildings arrive at Wharetana Bay on a barge from Auckland this morning and will be greeted by residents waving placards, opposing the installation of the buildings on Te Whau Esplanade Reserve.
Resident Ross Gillespie says resource consent issues haven't been resolved.
He says it's right in the middle of archeological land.
Ross Gillespie says the buildings will dominate the 170-year-old historic site.
