Proposed Draft Concept Plan and Proposed Naming for 83 Ford Road, Maketu

Background:

83 Ford Road comprises of 3 hectares of fee simple land in Maketu and was purchased by Council for community use in June 2016. The land includes the Tukotahi Marae, a boat ramp and jetty and a carpark area. Its strategic location provides connections to land owned by Bay of Plenty Regional Council along Kaituna River to Te Pourepo O Kaituna and the Tauranga Link Cycleway.


Historically, the land was Māori Customary Land known as 'Te Tumu Kaituna No. 11A No1. Block' however through the Native Land Court process on 7 July 1982, it ceased to be Māori Land.


Council completed a pre-engagement in August-September 2020 regarding the future use of this site. The pre-engagement was to ascertain ideas, level of interest, what people would like to see built and who else is interested that Council isn't aware of. Feedback from this earlier round of engagement has informed the development of a draft concept plan.


Please have your say on the Proposed Draft Concept Plan and Proposed Naming for 83 Ford Road, Maketu.

Engagement ends at 5pm, Wednesday 12 May 2021.




Draft concept plan:

  • Proposes spaces for the Maketu Coastguard and the Maketu Hoe Waka Club to have their base onsite.
  • Other spaces being proposed include multi-purpose open space, elevated picnic area, parking for boaties, visitors and cyclists, pedestrian paths, cycleway and Tukotahi Marae.


Proposed naming:

  • The reserve is currently known as 83 Ford Road due to its location, however, we are proposing to rename it, to better reflect its historic significance.
  • Our policy acknowledges the New Zealand Geographical Board Rule of Nomenclature which provides guidelines encouraging the use of original place names from Tangata Whenua, in relation to their tribal boundary.
  • Proposed naming to Otaiparia Reserve. Otaiparia is the name historically used in reference to the area by Tangata Whenua.
