Proposed land purchase for future sports and recreational facilities in Mangawhai

Kaipara District Council is considering the purchase of a 5.8 hectare block of land in Mangawhai Village for future use as public sporting and recreational facilities, and want to know what you think.

The cost to purchase the land will be up to $5.9 million. The purchase will not impact rates, as we are proposing to use the current pool of reserve contributions to buy the land.

Mangawhai is growing fast, and finding flat, centrally located land is becoming increasingly difficult, but we now have an opportunity to secure land for future public sporting and recreational facilities.

To find out more, and to have your say complete the online form or drop into the Kaipara District Council office in Mangawhai to pick up a feedback form.

Feedback closes 5pm Monday 5 September.

District Plan Review - Exposure Draft

We are reviewing and updating our current District Plan – looking ahead to the next 10 to 15 years. The Kaipara District Plan is the ‘rule book’, which is applied to manage development, activities and the environment within the district. Its purpose is to protect our environment, historical heritage and cultural tāonga for future generations, through sustainable resource management, while supporting our communities to live and grow.

The District Plan influences the future shape and feel of our District, which is why it’s important for Kaipara communities to be informed and get involved.
