New Footpath MHCC to Country Kids

With many thanks to our supporters: Sarau Trust, our contractors (Hockley Brothers, Chambers & Jackett, Taylors Contracting), Tasman District Council, Moutere Hills Community Centre, Country Kids, and our helpful adjacent landowners for access and storage space.

We Are Building a Footpath!

The Moutere Hills Residents Association will be constructing a section of public footpath alongside the Moutere Highway between the Moutere Hills Community Centre and Country Kids preschool.

  • Work will be carried out in the road reserve between April 17 and April 19.
  • Temporary traffic management will be in place. The road shoulder in this area will be closed during this time and pedestrian access along the road side may be blocked.
  • Normal access to the main entrances of the Community Centre and Country Kids will not be affected.
  • Please stay clear of the construction site at all times, and please inform others to do the same. Apologies for any inconvenience this might cause.

This project is entirely community-funded, and made possible with donations from the Sarau Trust!
