Community Connection April 2020

Horowhenua District Council’s Community Connection is published on the first Wednesday of each month and distributed to households throughout the district as an insert in the Horowhenua Chronicle newspaper.

With the Chronicle not being published during the Level 4 Covid-19 Alert we can’t put a copy on the noticeboard either. Here’s a link to Community Connection – April 2020 (PDF, 628KB). Or grab it from here: Community Connection – April 2020 (PDF, 628KB).

Beach access upgraded 29 November 2019

The Horowhenua District Council have graded the Manga Pirau Street beach access, added mulch to help stabilise the sand and blocked off the illegally created track.

The mulch is an experiment but if folks drive in a way to avoid ripping up the track it should help a bit.

Work was completed before 0930 on 29 November 2019.

Mulch has been laid to help stabilise the sand on the track.

Manakau Strategic Plan 2019 (affects Waikawa Beach)

We have been advised by the Manakau Community District Association about an event that may have implications for us at Waikawa Beach. Apparently there is a subdivision coming up near Emma Drive. If that’s the case then new housing may put pressure on Waikawa Beach Road.

Here’s the notice we received:

Tiffany Gower of the HDC has drafted a Strategic plan for Manakau and we have the opportunity to contribute to this draft in a discussion with Tiffany at a meeting in the Manakau Hall.

On Thursday 21st November [2019] at 4pm

After this discussion the plan will be finalised and put out for consultation. A later meeting will most likely be on a Sunday for maximum availability.

In light of the huge tracts of land put on the market lately, it is most important that the community share with HDC their vision for the future of our area.

To assist with logistics please RSVP by 18th November.

Your ideas are welcome and valued.

If you plan to attend please contact the MDCA directly.
