In 2019, we asked for your feedback on our plans for a parking area at the Kaiaua end of the Hauraki Rail Trail north of Kaiaua township.
At that time, our plans included day and overnight parking areas with natural landscaping, picnic areas and a toilet and shower facility.
Quite a bit of time has passed since these plans were finalised so we’ve given them a final once over before we start work on the project. After completing this review, we think having a public toilet and shower facility in the area near the pirate ship playground makes more sense than putting them in the overnight parking area.
This is because they would be accessible to more people there, including users of the playground, visitors to the Pink Store, boat ramp users and travellers stopping to stretch their legs. There is also more space to plant screening plants to help the facility blend into the natural landscape. We would still provide day and overnight parking areas, natural landscaping and picnic areas in the original location.
It would only be a short walk for people staying or picnicking in the overnight parking area to use the toilets and shower in the pirate ship playground area.
Should we build the toilet and shower facility at the overnight parking area as originally planned, or does it make more sense to build them in the pirate ship playground area?
Written feedback will be accepted from 25 March to 30 April 2021.
