Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Resident Survey

10 Jul 2013, 10:25 AM

Waitomo District residents have the opportunity to have a say about Council service delivery through a Resident Survey being conducted during July. The survey will gauge Council’s performance across a range of services by interviewing approximately 800 people from all over Waitomo District. A random selection of residents will be telephoned on weeknights between the hours of 4.30pm and 9.00pm. Resident’s will be asked about a range of Council services including water, refuse and recycling, parks and reserves, as well as the overall performance of Council.

The survey is an ideal opportunity for those who are contacted to express their views on the direction in which Council and the district are heading. The telephone survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.
