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.
Let’s say it’s just before 3 pm on a Saturday, maybe 26 October 2019. And let’s say you drive a red car onto the beach. The back is loaded with 2 full woolsacks or the like. Let’s say you drive onto the beach and speed off to the south.
