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.

Temporary look to official blue rubbish bags

14 Jun 2022, 5:25 PM

You may soon notice that our official blue rubbish bags will look a little different – Our Council logo is missing. This is only temporary.

Like many businesses, we are experiencing significant shipping delays, including our official refuse bags. Unfortunately, this is out of our control.

We have managed to secure a small shipment to see us through, but the blue bags won’t have our logo printed on them. These blue bags will still be considered as an official refuse bag and will be accepted by kerbside collection.

We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
