The Maunu area is bounded to the north by a number of reserves, including the Millington Road Reserve, Pukenui Forest Park, Water Supply Reserve and the Coronation Reserve.
Today, Maunu and Hora Hora are suburbs of Whangarei, with medium-density residential living closer to Whangarei City and rural-residential and rural living further out towards Maungatapere.
The main land use proposals for this area are as follows.
Extension of Living 1 Zoning
This proposal covers the area on Pompallier Estates Road and it is considered that higher density residential development is appropriate for this area.
Extension of Living 3 / Future Living 1 Zoning
The area on Austin Road forms a natural extension of the urban area. The recommendation is that this area be re-zoned Living 3 as an underlying environment with a future environment of Living 1.
Living 1 Zoning
This proposal covers the area of O’Shea Road/ Kotuku Street/Raumanga Valley Road which extends and joins two existing Living 1 zones on Maunu and Raumanga.
Extension around Te Hape Road residential settlement
The recommendation is that this area be re-zoned Living 3 with a future Living environment to allow for a natural expansion of Te Hape village.
This proposal covers the area between Te Hape Settlement and Hawken Road. The introduction of this new zone is a response to market demand for properties in a rural setting, while allowing larger economic farming units to be retained in the countryside.
Retaining the Countryside Zoning on Cemetery Road
It is proposed to retain this land as part of the Countryside Environment zone so as to maintain the agricultural productivity potential that exists on the fringe of the Whangarei City. The remainder of the study area should be retained as Countryside.
