Whangārei has been offered $60m from central government to help build a conference and multi-events facility on the Hātea River waterfront.
We've put as much detail as possible, and a feedback form here:
Catering for functions, events and performances, the Oruku Conference and Multi-Events Centre would be able to host 1,000 people standing, 750 seated and 650 for banquet seating.
The entire project, including the centre, roading, wastewater and path upgrades, a boardwalk, seawall, plaza, ferry terminal and new bridge across the Hātea River could cost up to $123m.
We need to hear from you by 18 November 2021 about whether you’d like this project to go ahead or not. There’s a lot to weigh up - what do you think?
