Local business delivers veges and pizzas

Just up the road, the Manakau Market:

has grown a thriving delivery business over lockdown and continues to run fruit and vege from Levin all the way South to Raumati, Monday to Friday. Starting off with the seasonal boxes, adding in the option to pick your own goodies, adding in grocery and local artisan items as well.

Pick up is also OK.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday they also deliver pizza from 5 to 8 pm.

Imagine several hundred more houses on Waikawa Beach Road

We don’t normally post properties for sale here, but this one is interesting because of its size and the point mentioned in the write-up:

385 Waikawa Beach Road, Manakau
Land Size: 216.04 hectares (533.86 Acres)
Dwelling Area: 415 m2

Awesome big block at Manakau, Horowhenua, in three certificates of title. Possession date negotiable as my vendors are flexible and understand next owner(s) may look at alternative land use possibilities – land development and/or farming diversification away from its current usage as a One Plan Approved self-contained dairy.

Note that part about land development. That space could be big enough for several hundred houses, and we know the Horowhenua District Council is looking for land for additional population.

This is one to keep an eye on.
