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.

Review of Local Alcohol Policy

7 Jun 2022, 12:10 PM

Waitomo District Council is currently review-ing its Local Alcohol Policy 2022 (LAP), and we would like your feedback.


The policy is intended to set a clear frame-work which will be applied to all applications for on, off, club and special licences, tempo-rary authorities, and managers certificates within the Waitomo District.


Council has made some minor amendments to the LAP to improve the introduction sec-tions and also provide more clarity on what the policy covers.
