Hīhīaua Precinct Plan

The Hīhīaua Precinct Plan details the growth and development planned for the Precinct over 20-30 years.

The plan is to:

  • assist with the efficient delivery of key infrastructure, land use planning and community services for the area
  • provide a framework for introducing residential and mixed use activities in the Hīhīaua Precinct, through changes to the District Plan.  

The Hīhīaua Precinct is located in the inner city of Whangārei on a peninsula between two waterways; the Hatea River and Waiarohia Stream.

At present the precinct is predominantly light industrial in nature, but was selected for redevelopment to accommodate some of Whangārei's growth and transform the area into an attractive residential / mixed use area.

Over time, when land becomes available through tenants choosing to relocate, changes to land use will create a vibrant and attractive inner city residential mixed use precinct.
