Safety protocols and closures are in place for Council facilities. Due to Covid-19 social distancing rules, the extraordinary Council meeting (Three Waters) on Monday 27 September will be closed to the public. Instead the meeting will be livestreamed on our Council Facebook page: facebook.com/WhangareiDCFind out more about our safety protocols:
Thousands of volunteers work quietly behind the scenes in Whangārei District providing essential community services and creating positive change.
Volunteers participate in education, community health care, community safety, sports and recreation, heritage and arts, environmental protection and advocacy, search and rescue and volunteer fire fighting.
For school leavers, volunteering provides the opportunity to develop skills for future employment.
For others, volunteering is a meaningful way of connecting with the community.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or your organisation wishes to engage volunteers, then visit the Volunteering Northland website. All Council volunteers must apply through Volunteering Northland.
We work in partnership with volunteers and community groups to provide a range of services and activities including:
Tsunami siren testing - Northland Regional Council website
COVID-19 and food safety
Wastewater testing (health.govt.nz)
