Waimarama Community Plan 2013

Waimarama is iconic to Hawke’s Bay and is recognised as being the premier coastal location in the region.

Underpinning this is the mana whenua, as their relationship with the resources and the natural environment are key to the spirit of Waimarama. 

The community’s vision is that this unique environment should be preserved and that all development should be sustainably managed. The plan has a central goal of producing a framework that will make Waimarama an even better place to live and visit.

Working together during the development of the plan has allowed Council to respond quickly to some of the issues that have been raised. Some aspects of traffic safety around the area have already been addressed while other priorities including water management need further consideration. Advancing the development of a reliable water supply will be worked through with the hau kainga as well as the wider community.
