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 2022/2023


Waitomo District Council adopted its Annual Plan 2022/2023 on 31 May 2022.


The Annual Plan will be made available by 30 June on our website. Printed copies will also be available.


You are welcome to view the Annual Plan at the WDC office on Queen Street, Te Kuiti, or the Library on Taupiri Street.
You can also request a copy by contacting our Customer Services Team on 0800 932 4357.


Fees and Charges


On 31 May 2022, Council adopted the fees and charges for 2022/23. These fees and charges apply from 1 July 2022.


Due to the on-going impact of COVID-19, Council has made every effort to retain fees and charges at the 2021/22 level. However, costs need to be recovered so that Council services are not subsidised further by rates.


The majority of these fees remain unchanged. But some changes have been made to the fees and charges of the following activities:

• Landfill charges and the cost of the official WDC rubbish bag
• Production of a Project Information Memorandum (PIM)
• Elderly housing

The schedule of Fees and Charges will be available on our website from 1 July 2022.
You can request a hardcopy of the fees and charges by contacting our Customer Services Team on 0800 932 4357 or email
