Views sought on village centre


The Waikato District Council will seek more views about recreational facilities and a commercial hub for Tamahere at a public open day on Thursday, February 10.

Last July, the council asked for comments on how the community wanted to see the Tamahere Country Living Zone develop.

Since then, the council has reviewed the feedback, made additional investigations and is now seeking further comment, said Waikato District Council General Manager Strategy & Support Tony Whittaker.

A public open day will be held on Thursday, February 10 at the Tamahere Community Hall, Devine Road, from 2.30pm until 7.30pm.

“We have identified two options for the location of retail development and its proximity to the proposed recreational area and to progress this it’s essential we get input from the community to make the right decision for Tamahere’s future,” Whittaker said in a statement.

Issues and options for the future plan for Tamahere include land use around the village area, traffic management options for Newell Road, the creation of pedestrian areas, stormwater management and how the rural residential focus can be maintained while still allowing for a degree of local service in the area.

Council representatives will be at the open day to discuss the options for the location of retail development, and to answer any questions.

Feedback forms will also be available at the open day. Comments need to be in by 5pm, Friday, February 18.
