As part of the Road to Zero National Road Safety Strategy, the Whangarei District Council are reviewing speed limits in a staged process, focusing on areas where there is evidence that changing the speed limit will make the most difference. The goal is to improve the overall road safety to reduce serious harm and fatal crashes as well as to match new speed limits with the road environment.
Whangārei District Council will be seeking community feedback on proposed new speed limits in the Whangārei Heads area, including Parua Bay and other harbour side communities. For more information on the proposal click here [pdf 1.1 MB]. Consultation and submissions will be open from 28 October to 5 December 2022, with hearings to be scheduled in February 2023.
Want to learn more? Come along to the McLeod Bay Hall for a presentation from Shawn Baker, NTA (Northland Transportation Alliance) Contractor/Speed Limits Project Manager, on the proposed changes and how to make a submission. Please note that questions during this presentation will be moderated.
Patrick Holmes, our newly elected District Councillor, will be attending the meeting and is very keen to understand how our community can engage with the consultation process.

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:

- 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.
