The study area lies to the north east of Whangarei City and includes the shops at the Kiripaka Road roundabout and Paramount Parade, while encompassing the Tikipunga, Glenbervie and Vinegar Hill areas and a range of residential, recreational, commercial and rural land uses.

The proposals

The main land use proposals for the area are as follows.

Introduction of Living 2 Environment

The proposal covers the area between the golf course and Corks Road. The presence of a range of community services, shops, public transport to and from Kamo and the Whangarei CBD and a good roading network within the proposed zone, make the area ideal for the proposed Living 2 zone.

Extension of Living 1 Environment

This proposal covers the east of the existing village centre, along Ngunguru Road and Sands Road. New development may need to provide for some further roading infrastructure, but public transport is considered to be adequate, as are the existing community resources.
Of importance is the consideration and protection of the natural environment, wherever possible, while also considering engineering solutions to address the flooding potential.

Extension of Living 1 Environment

The proposed zone covers the area to the north between Vinegar Hill Road and State Highway 1. This proposal does not encounter any major constraints, although site-specific engineering reports are recommended for flood susceptible areas and areas with instability risk. 

Changing Living 3 to Living 1

The proposal covers the area north of Balmoral Road. Reticulated services are available in the vicinity, enabling new developments to be connected.  Appropriate roading infrastructure is in place, and easy access is available to public transport and community resources.

Extension of Living 3 to the east of the current Living 3 Environment

The proposal provides for a gradual transition of densities from urban to countryside, and allows long term consolidation of the urbanised area by allowing densities to increase on the fringes.
The area is serviced by a well-established roading network that provides easy access to a range of community facilities.  Connection to reticulated services will be available to some areas, and is able to be extended in the future.

Creation of Living 3 Environment (east)

The proposed zone covers the area east of Vinegar Hill Road and North of the Waitaua Stream. The area borders a collector road which provides easy access to a range of community facilities.
Being on the boundary of a stream that forms part of an ecologically significant area, development must be sensitive to the ecology, and engineering reports are recommended to address potential flood susceptibility

Creation of Living 3 Environment (west)

The proposed change covers the area west of Vinegar Hill Road and North of the proposed Living 1 Environment. It provides for a more gradual transition of densities from Urban to Countryside, and allows long term consolidation of the urbanised area by allowing densities to increase on the fringes.

Creation of Rural-Residential Environment (east)

The proposal covers the area east of Vinegar Hill Road and north of the proposed Living 3 Environment. The area is within a reasonable distance to the village centre of Tikipunga, which provides a range of community facilities.  Reticulated services are not required as this zone is to be self-reliant.
Developments are recommended to be sympathetic to the surrounding natural environment, with particular regard to soil versatility, stream edges and riparian margins. 

Creation of Rural-Residential Environment (west)

The proposal covers the area west of Vinegar Hill Road, north of the proposed Living 1 Environment and west of the proposed Living 3 Environment. The area is within a reasonable distance to both the village centres of Tikipunga and Kamo, which provide a range of community facilities.  Reticulated services are not required as the zone is to be self-reliant.
