Mangawhai Community Advisory Panel

L-R: Ian Greenwood, Joanna Roberts, Richard Gunson, Kelli Sullivan, David Wingate and Belinda Vernon (Chair)

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 held an Open Day on their recommendations.
  • 11 July 2017 – Council received Panel’s recommendations.
  • 26 September 2017 – Council Meeting to consider the adoption of the draft Mangawhai Community Plan for feedback.
  • September and October 2017 – Feedback period for the community to provide feedback and input into the Mangawhai Community Plan
  • October and November 2017 – The feedback collated and presented to Council.
  • November 2017 – The draft Mangawhai Community Plan updated based on community feedback.
  • December 11 2017 - 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.

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.
