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.

Road name change – Urban portion of Mangarino Road to Mangarino Street

19 Feb 2018

Waitomo District Council (WDC) has recently conducted an analysis of the property addressing database.  Mangarino Road was identified as having seven duplicate addresses. 

Property addressing is needed for mail, emergency services (fire, police, ambulance), as well as utilities like power and water.  It is also the basis of New Zealand’s voting system. As such it is important to ensure the property addressing database is as accurate as possible.

In order to resolve this duplication and ensure the potential for confusion and delayed response from vital services is eliminated, WDC has made a decision to re-name the urban portion of Mangarino Road to Mangarino Street.  The effected section or urban portion is identified on the aerial map below.

WDC will ensure the new address information is provided to the Electoral Service and the Land Information New Zealand national dataset which is accessed by NZ Post. New road signs will be in place later this month.   

WDC has informed affected parties directly however should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Waitomo District Council on 0800 932 4357.
