Whangarei District Council has identified three alternative locations which could replace the Whangārei Airport at Onerahi if it is no longer able to meet Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) rules and requirements at its current location in future.
The four options are:
- Ruatangata West
- One Tree Point West
- Continue to operate from Onerahi
The Whangarei Heads Citizen Association has organised a PUBLIC MEETING this WEDNESDAY 15th JUNE (7pm – 8pm) at the MCLEOD BAY HALL to provide local residents the opportunity to learn more about why Council is investigating alternative sites, each of the location options including maps of area and approach paths, to ask questions and provide feedback.

The hall continues to operate under the Red traffic light setting of the Covid-19 Protection Framework, however as of tuesday 5 April 2022,
the WHCA no longer requires all McLeod Bay Hall users to have a valid My vaccine pass. Hall hirers can choose to require vaccine passes for those who use the hall during the time that they hire it.
As of Friday 3 December 2021, the hall is operating under the Red traffic light setting of the Covid-19 Protection Framework. All hall users are required to use My Vaccine pass and hall hirers are to manage their own system of ensuring compliance with the framework.
As of 11:59 pm Tuesday 20 October, the hall will be reopened with Covid alert Level 2 restrictions in place.
Due to the change to Covid Alert Level 3, the McLeod Bay Hall is closed to all users as from 11:59pm Friday 8 October. The hall will remain closed until this area returns to Covid alert level 2.
Be patient, be kind and keep your community safe.
