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.

Council adopts Annual Plan 2022/23

3 Jun 2022, 11:13 AM


Council adopted its Annual Plan 2022/23 on Tuesday, as well as the Fees and Charges schedule for the coming financial year.

The Annual Plan (AP) is Council’s budget for each financial year. It explains how the Council will fund projects, activities and services identified for that year. 

An AP is developed each year, except for the year where Council consults on and adopts a Long Term Plan (LTP).

The Annual Plan and our Fees and Charges schedule will be made available by 30 June on our website and printed copies will also be available.

To help you better understand what’s included in an AP, we have created an easy to understand information document as well as some FAQs.
