“From today 1 July the average motor vehicle licence levy will drop $135 per year, and on current projections - a further $75 in 2016. This great news for motorists”, said Coromandel MP Scott Simpson.
“ACC was in a very poor financial state back in 2008 but now due to careful management ACC has become fully funded and stable. That means all annual licence fees can be reduced and families won’t have to fork out so much on registering motor vehicles.”
“There’s also good news on the health front with free doctor visits and prescriptions for children under 13 starting from today as well.” said Mr Simpson.
“These policy changes put more money in people’s pockets.”
“The time for talking about the fate of the old Kopu bridge has passed” said Coromandel MP Scott Simpson.
“It’s now more than 3 and a half years since the new bridge was opened and still no final decision on the old bridge. The original plan was to demolish the old bridge and I am saying the “powers that be” should just get on with it.”
Coromandel MP Scott Simpson is delighted that Thames-Coromandel District Council will receive $20,000 under the Youth Development Partnership Fund 2015.

“The funding will also support young people to lead and deliver a local art project
Coromandel MP Scott Simpson is warning against complacency after new surveys of the region show kauri dieback disease has not spread as widely as feared.
Scott Simpson MP says ‘The disease has only been confirmed on two sites on the Coromandel. This is a relief for volunteers who’re working hard to prevent the disease from spreading. However we must remain vigilant so that kauri dieback is contained.’
MP Scott Simpson is welcoming two new grants to help protect Coromandel’s kiwi and Kauri.
