An URGENT Message from

Alison Shrigley Reporter from Whangārei Leader

Pukenui Western Hills Forest Trust
G'day Whangarei, Ranger Ben here
Just a quick bit of news, we have had some kiwi scat found at Barge park. This is a kiwi who has since had its transmitter removed and is now wild. We humbly ask the awesome people of Whangarei if you walk your dogs at Barge park please keep them on a leed, especially on the bottom paddock adjacent to the forest. With your continued support our kiwi will thrive.

Consultation: Oruku Landing Conference and Multi Events Centre

The Team from Whangarei District Council

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:
👉 www.wdc.govt.nz...

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?
