Taupō puts Mangakino plans to public

The public will be given an opportunity to have its say on concept plans for the redevelopment of the Mangakino Reserve and Maraetai Lakefront, Taupō District Council said in a statement this week.

In 2017, the Mangakino community, key stakeholders and user groups were surveyed to help develop a plan to better manage an increase in activity at the Mangakino Lakefront.

From this work, the Lake Maraetai Lakeside Development Plan was produced.

“Council’s consultants took the feedback and developed the current concept plan for consultation,” the Council said.

Council says it is now planning to hold community consultation sessions in Mangakino.

In Council’s Long-term Plan the following items for Mangakino have been identified for this year:

  • Renewal of the toilet block at the lakefront;
  • Renewal of the jetty/boat ramp;
  • Road to be sealed to the boat ramp;
  • Vehicle crossing/entrance off Lake Road onto the reserve between the Pouakani Marae and the Te Awhina Hall (formerly the Mangakino Bowling Club).

Completing this work will be dependent on availability of supplies and contractors while keeping within budget, Council said.

Any other items in the concept plan will be budgeted for in the next Council Long-term Plan, which is 18 months away, it said.
