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.

New building consent system is live

12 Feb 2020, 11:54 AM

Waitomo District Council's new building consent system, Alpha, is now live. 

Alpha, which went live on Wednesday 12 February 2020 will allow you to submit and track your building projects, including consents, certificates of acceptance, exemptions and code compliance certificates. 

It will be used for all building consent applications in the Waitomo District. 

If you have a paper based application to submit from 12th February, and are unsure how to submit electronically, the building compliance team will be able to provide guidance and assistance over the phone or at our office.

Those with an existing building consent underway will continue to have their consent processed using the current paper-based system until it is complete.

For more information please phone the building compliance team on 0800 932 4357.
