The Mangawhai Community Plan (MCP) identified a need and desire from the Mangawhai community for increased and better connectivity both to the wider township and, in particular, the coastal environment as well as the upgrade of existing and installation of new infrastructure (storm/waste water and roading).
The MCP was adopted by Council at its 28 February 2018 meeting. Projects within the MCP are now incorporated into Council’s draft Long Term Plan 2018/2028 (LTP).
Keep an eye out for our Mangawhai Community Plan “Making it happen” signs going up around town.
KDC looks forward to continuing community engagement on design elements.

The Stage One projects for the Transport work stream have been scoped and identified to be a shared path to create an enhanced and safer walking connectivity around the network and an intersection upgrade to cater for the traffic demand with the increase in growth for Mangawhai.
The Stage One projects for the Water Management work stream have been scoped and identified to be the installation of 100 year design storm water pipelines that will mitigate current issues with storm water and sewage discharge in Eveline Street and Quail Way. Quail Way was not originally an MCP project as it fell outside of the area specifically identified for storm water assessment, it came to KDC through service requests from the community and the realization that something drastic needed to be done.
