A Community Advisory Panel was established in September 2016 to give feedback to Council and engage with the wider Mangawhai community on their preferred direction for growth in Mangawhai. Over the past 10 months the Panel has reviewed technical reports on six main areas (Transportation, Planning, Open Spaces, Urban Design, Water and Stormwater) and have based their recommendations on these learnings as well as the views shared to them by the community. Their recommendations will be shared with Council over the next month and will be considered in a draft Mangawhai Community Plan which is currently being prepared by Council.

The next steps for the Mangawhai Community Plan project include:
  • 01 July 2017 – Advisory Panel to hold an Open Day on their recommendations.
  • 11 July 2017 – Council receive Panel’s recommendations.
  • 14 August 2017 – Council Meeting to consider the adoption of the draft Mangawhai Community Plan for feedback.
  • August and September 2017 – Feedback period for the community to provide feedback and input into the Mangawhai Community Plan
  • September and October 2017 – The feedback collated and presented to Council.
  • October 2017 – The draft Mangawhai Community Plan updated based on community feedback.
  • November 2017 (TBC) - Formal adoption on the Mangawhai Community Plan.
Once the final Mangawhai Community Plan has been formally adopted by Council, any District Plan changes will be undertaken and any projects included in the proposed Long Term Plan 2018/2028.
The Community Panel includes:
Belinda Vernon (Chair), Ian Greenwood, Kelli Sullivan, David Wingate, Joanna Roberts and Richard Gunson.

We would like to formally acknowledge and thank the Advisory Panel for their work in consulting with and representing the views of the Mangawhai community.
