Whangaparaoa Residents and Ratepayers Assoc


Greetings to members and residents

This newsletter has been sent to you to inform you about issues the committee has been dealing with over the last six months.


We are delighted that this area can now be represented by two councillors - Wayne Walker and John Watson. Both of these people live on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula and have done for many years. They are both longstanding members of this committee and have a real interest in the well being of our wonderful community here.

On the local board we have Greg Sayers and Louisa Kronqvist representing our voice as a community.

We can look forward to the best interests of our community being represented by these dedicated people.


We are concerned with the implications of the Auckland Unitary Plan for the Hibiscus Coast.

We are planning to hold a public meeting in the Whangaparaoa Ratepayers Hall to create submissions to alleviate our concerns. Submissions are required to be in by 28th February so we will keep you informed as to date and time of meeting as we are sure you will want to discuss the implications of this plan for our community and submit your concerns.

There should be collaboration between community groups on topics such as building density and improving the system of scheduling for tree preservation. The destruction of the Resource Management Act increases the potential for threats to the environment.

We will continue to monitor developments at The Hammerhead, Gulf Harbour so that we keep this stretch of land for public use as it is now.

Reserves and set netting too have not been put on the back burner!


We are concerned about the practices of Watercare regarding installation of water meters. Costs of the installation are unnecessarily high. We would like to see the costs brought down to an appropriate level and  plan to submit our concerns to Watercare regarding this with a view to making the cost of water meter installation a realistic one for all of our community members.


Transportation matters on the Hibiscus Coast are still an issue, especially the proposed widening of Whangaparaoa Road and ferries to the city.

We think bus services should have extended evening services and full coverage to include Arkles Bay.

We are due for a transportation review by the council, but only after South Auckland and West Auckland have had theirs!


When you next visit the Whangaparaoa Hall check out the new Honours Board. This recognizes past presidents of the association - workers for our community!
