Wow! The Havelock Enhancement Working Group has been doing a fantastic job bringing the Christmas spirit to Havelock this year. I was even lucky enough to come home to an early visit from Santa who left a Christmas Tree at my front gate! For full details and more information about Christmas in Havelock check out their Facebook Page Here.
The Havelock Community Boardwalk Project has been progressing steadily with a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes developing and finalising the projects design. Feedback from the community has been very positive and we would like to thank those who have helped us to refine the proposed design and identify other improvements and opportunities along the way.
In recent months several resource consent implications have been highlighted during consultation and at this stage in the process we are working with relevant stakeholders to investigate options and available alternatives to optimise the projects design prior to initiating the resource consent process.
Embarking on the Resource Consent phase for a project of this scope represents a significant workload for a voluntary organisation such as the Havelock Community Association and will take time. Nonetheless we wish the community to fully understand our continuing commitment to advancing the project. Once we have definitive information about the project specifications a public meeting will be held to communicate the updated plans to the wider community in early 2016.
In the mean time I would encourage anyone with questions or queries about the Havelock Boardwalk to come along and talk to myself during my drop in office hours (Fridays 9am-11am in the HCA Community Office), or contact me at my details below to arrange a convenient time.
As well as keeping the boardwalk as a primary focus I will also be working to advance our Havelock Community Plan including the following projects in 2016:
