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.
We hope everyone’s doing well with the Level 4 Alert shutdown, and keeping those bubbles safe so we can break the chain of virus transmission. Remember: no in person visitors or going visiting. You also may not shuttle between a beach house and a residence elsewhere.
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  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.
