Ratepayers and residents of the Hahei Community n conjunction with the Mercury Bay Community Board are working towards an updated Community Plan for completion in 2016. The updated Community Plan will reflect the hopes, ideas and priorities of this community and forms part of Council’s Long Term Plans. Community Plans provides a framework which can be used to guide decision making for local planning purposes (although its contents are not binding on the Council). It may for example be used to secure support from within and outside the community for funding for specific projects. It is in the same format as that of other community plans across the district. You can download the 2005-2015 Hahei Community Plan and a draft update (September 2015) at the right-hand side of this page.
