September 10, 2019

Vision Kerikeri has for many years been promoting the benefits of a a main street that is prioritised for the pedestrian rather than the car. 

I walk through the CBD several times a week and often take time out to enjoy a coffee street side. The major detraction from both experiences is the traffic volume which generates considerable noise and vehicle fumes. The danger of crossing the street is somewhat mitigate...

The unexpected announcement that completion of the Kerikeri wastewater project has been delayed for at least three months, and Council’s explanation for the delay, raises several questions.

According to an information page on the FNDC website, updated on July 4th this year, the project should “be fully operational by Christmas 2019” 

In the July newsletter sent out to ratepayers along with rates demands, it was s...

In an opinion piece published in The Northland Age this week, Vision Kerikeri Chair, David Clendon, highlights some of the development related issues associated with the proposed Arvida Retirement Village in Hall Road in Kerikeri, that could effect all Far North ratepayers.

Vision Kerikeri posted a link to David's article on Facebook which has generated support and raised additional questions around th...

Many of you will be aware of the diminishing access to our surrounding coastline, primarily as a result of private land developments.

Taronui Recreation Reserve (see map) is one area that the public can still access. However, that access is very limited, being a 3.4km Crown owned conservation strip that can only be negotiated on foot. Without vehicle access, this beautiful area is inaccessible to many people lo...

Vision Kerikeri has submitted the following in response to the Council's call for public submissions on their draft management plan for the Kerikeri Domain.

The Kerikeri Domain is a significant social and environmental asset that sits literally at the heart of our township. The evident high level of interest and concern about its future use and development indicates that it also sits close to the hearts and mind...

Council has adopted the LTP and although it has set aside $100,000 to study Kerikeri roading, yet again Kerikeri has failed to achieve the Ring Road around the CBD. Although It is included in the Kerikeri/Waipapa Structure Plan 2007 and we have been submitting on it for 11 years without effect, it is not programmed until 2022 (we are not holding our breath).

Council has decided that it will initiate a district w...

Are we using the correct population data set?

Population trends should be a key pillar in planning for and managing future infrastructure needs.

Historically planning has been a challenge for Kerikeri. We seem to be perennially ‘behind the eight ball’ with critical infrastructure generally failing to keep pace with the demands from the population growth of both the town and its broader residential ‘catchment’ ar...

Heard of the expression “the squeaky wheel gets the oil”? Well Kerikeri, it is time to start squeaking!

The Far North District Council has released a draft Long Term Plan (LTP) that outlines a wide range of District-wide infrastructure proposals for the 10 year period starting in July 2018. The plan outlines; potential projects, estimated costs and timing for each.

Feedback is being sought from the public (by 4 A...

Kerikeri is again clearly experiencing considerable property development and our enquiries indicate that more is planned. We are astonished that Council requires no development contributions which must be nearly unique among New Zealand local authorities. Council has few funding sources; there is resistance to rate increases, an apparent aversion to borrowing and yet no development contributions.

Development con...

The FNDC wants to hear about exceptional trees that need special protection. The public can nominate a tree, or group of trees, that they think should be identified as Notable Trees and protected in the new District Plan. It is illegal to damage or remove trees included on the District Plan Schedule of Notable Trees.

Trees can be included on the schedule because of their age, size, character and visibility; beca...
