Funding for lakes facilities

Peter Tynan, Kaipara District Council acting chief executive

Kai Iwi Lakes will be seeing some new facilities thanks to funding from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment.

The successful funding application means Kaipara District Council can progress its planned project for additional toilet facilities and a campervan dump station at Lake Waikare.

The funding will top up KDC funds allowing the $140,500 project to commence in September.

Campsites at Promenade Point and Pine Beach provide the visitors with shower and toilet blocks, however, the Domain is currently without a dump station, which can limit how long a campervan stays.

Acting chief executive, Peter Tynan, says Lake Waikare is becoming an increasingly popular location for events.

“Well-frequented by motorhomes and campervans, along with its swimming pontoon and newly installed picnic tables, Lake Waikare is an ideal location for additional toilets and campervan facilities.

“Over the last two years Kaipara District Council have invested in walking and cycling tracks around the lakes, with ongoing improvements planned, thus giving visitors and locals even more reason to enjoy this beautiful part of Kaipara.”
