NZ: Multimillion-dollar development including golf course proposed for Kerikeri-Waipapa

POSTED ON August 15, 2021 @ 6:43 am

Bay of Islands

Housing for up to 2000-4000 people, a golf course, hotel, medical centre, new connecting roads and cycleways are among the proposal’s features.

The new development is between the rapidly-growing Bay of Islands towns and will effectively join the two centres.

It will effectively increase the population of Kerikeri township by two-thirds and double its footprint.

Once in a lifetime opportunity

The 250 hectare proposal would be one of Northland’s biggest.

Dennis Corbett, development project advisor, outlined the proposal to Far North District Council (FNDC) on Thursday, calling it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Corbett said consultation had already been carried out with a range of people including local Iwi Ngāti Rehia, Vision Kerikeri, Bay of Islands Golf Club leadership and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

Housing would be mixed, including 200 apartments and other homes from across the price range.

Corbett said the development was earmarked to include part of the Bay of Islands Golf Club. Seventy per cent of its members would need to agree before this could happen.

The development would be largely self-funded. It would provide its own water and wastewater. Solar power specialists had also been consulted.

He said the development aimed to involve and supporting local iwi and having a significant cultural awareness. It aimed to create an environmentally-friendly special area admired and supported by locals and visitors and would take five to 15 years to build.
