Whangārei Heads Speed Limit Bylaw Review  

Public Meeting
McLeod Bay Hall
Wednesday 26th October, 7pm  

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.  

A gold coin donation to support the McLeod Bay Hall would be greatly appreciated. This meeting has been organised by the Whangārei Heads Citizen Association.
