The Moutere Hills Residents Association is an incorporated society founded in 2012 with the aim of giving voice to the residents of the Moutere Hills area and promoting the enjoyment and wellbeing of our community.

Our society goals are to

  • promote interest in the social, environmental, economic and cultural life in the Moutere Hills area
  • determine the consensual opinion of residents and ratepayers on the development of the Moutere Hills area
  • act as a channel of communication between the Tasman District Council and any other statutory bodies and the residents of the Moutere Hills area on matters relevant to the community

On this website you will find news about the development of the association and updates on our work.

Have a look at the projects page to see what we are currently working on.

If you would like to become involved, or just have your say, you are invited to join as a member or contact the association Committee about your concern.

The Committee aims to meet roughly once a month, and public meetings are held periodically to promote discussion on various topics and keep the community up to date with ongoing projects.
