We sent the following enquiry about the Long-Term Plan currently being consulted on:
We note that Page 144 and following of the Activity Statements mention a Waikawa Beach walkway.
Can you please clarify for us what that means or refers to. What walkway?
This was the Council’s response:
This is a proposal to potentially formalise a walkway from the Waikawa Bridge exit on the northern bank of the Waikawa stream to the beach via the existing title shown on the plan, or alternatively across the private land, to more effectively manage public access and minimise erosion/wear and tear to the back-dunes which have formed a relatively stable ecology.
The Activity Statements allocate funding each year from 2021 to 2031 for this walkway. The total is a bit over $300,000.
