Proposed Footpath Outside MHCC

The MHRA is proposing the construction of a formed footpath for pedestrian and bicycle use along the Moutere Highway between the Moutere Hills Community Centre and the Country Kids Preschool.

We want to create better access to the Community Centre for anybody travelling to the centre by foot or bike from the direction of Kelling Road.

This short section of footpath can also be connected to other possible footpaths or bike paths in the future.

We invite you to have your say on this proposal:

  • Do you support the construction of footpaths like this one?
  • Do you have any concerns to raise or suggestions to make?

Come to the AGM on Wednesday 20 September, 7pm at the Moutere Hills Community Centre to learn more.

AGM 2017

The next public meeting will be this year's Annual General Meeting which is set for:

Wednesday 20 September, from 7:00 pm at the Moutere Hills Community Centre

We hope you will find a place in your diary for this event and be able to join us on the day.

All members and the public are warmly invited.

Gardner Valley Road Intersection - Community Survey

Recently we performed a survey among local residents to see if there is concern about the traffic and safety situation at the intersection of Gardner Valley Road and the Moutere Highway. Follow this link for a map view.

We have received around 20 detailed responses overall. Of these...

  • 50% of respondents consider the intersection to be a significant problem
  • 30% of respondents do not see problems, or do not see the issue as high priority

All results are an approximation only. We have collected resident statements for both sides below, followed by a section of suggestions for improvement, and a section of general thoughts on the issue.

Holdaway Footbridge - Have Your Say!

As most local residents are aware the Holdaway footbridge on Holdaway Road suffered catastrophic damage due to the severe weather event which occurred on Wednesday 12 April.

TDC had been in the midst of repairing the bridge which was already closed to due damage caused by a vehicle accident. Those repair works are now of course redundant.

Council is now investigating whether it is worthwhile to replace the bridge and is asking for community feedback on this issue. So if you think the bridge should (or should not) be replaced, considering all costs involved, have your say now by sending feedback to the This email address is being protected from spambots.

We will collect all feedback received and forward this to Council.
