A fight between siblings over the subdivision of a farm into lifestyle blocks has gone to the High Court at Nelson.

Mark and Andrew McLaughlin sought an injunction to freeze the next stage of development of the Nelson property originally owned by their parents.

The property in Stoke is owned by a trust, which was established in 2004 by Jim and Edna McLaughlin.

They wanted the trustees of the trust to eventually realise the value of the farm property by subdividing it, to better benefit the discretionary beneficiaries: Now Edna, the couple’s four sons, their spouses and children.
