We can’t do without it. This years drought has certainly reinforced that. 

FNDC has received significant support from central government for temporary supplies, but the cost to ratepayers will still run into several millions of dollars. The drought has been a cost to many individuals and families at $300 per water tanker in Kerikeri District, and waits of four weeks have been reported.

Many in the Far North enjoy walking for exercise or pleasure, and public walking tracks along rivers are proving especially popular. In Kerikeri, for example, a new walkway on Wairoa Stream attracts many people daily, while recently-restored reserves at Peacock Garden and Reinga Road support access to waterways. Local volunteers created these walkways, removing rubbish, weeding, planting native trees and turnin...

On March 10th more than 20 Guides, Brownies and Pippins under their leader Barbara Roberts went weed busting along the Wairoa Stream boundary with Inlet Estate.

They made short work of hundreds of brush wattle, gorse, taiwan cherry and tobacco weed seedlings leaving it almost as weed free as a cricket pitch which really impressed the Friends of Wairoa Stream who hadn't had the resources to deal to this area.

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.
