We're removing some trees near the lagoon

Monday December 2 2019

We need to remove some trees near Hokowhitu Lagoon to dig service trenches.

The new residential subdivision that is being built at the old Teachers' College site needs to have more power, water and wastewater services than are currently there.

To do this, the services need to be run into the site along the road edge. This requires the developer to dig trenches. Unfortunately, there are seven trees that are in the way.

Over the next few months, you’ll see us removing these trees as the trenching is completed and the services are laid.

Once the services are laid the developer will install a new footpath providing better river access. A new set of roadside trees will be planted.
