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.

Tell us your views in our Resident’s survey

24 Apr 2017

As part of Waitomo District Council's on-going commitment to invite community feedback and engagement, our annual resident survey will be delivered to letterboxes across the district this week. Residents of the Waitomo District are invited to provide their opinion on Council’s performance and service delivery.

WDC Communications Officer Kelly Marriott says “What you tell us about the Council and our services is really important. It helps us to understand which services are most important to you, and where we can improve, so please do have your say.”

“The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and you can even fill it in online using your mobile phone or tablet. The results will help inform our upcoming priorities, plans and spending,” says Mrs Marriott.

The results of the survey are included in WDC’s annual report, and measure our performance and identify priorities for improvement.

Residents who take part in the survey are entered into the draw to win a $250 Prezzy Card.

Residents can have a say over a two week period. The survey closes Wednesday 17 May 2017.
