What's happening: New causeway and bridge at Raglan
The Rangitahi Peninsula in Raglan was rezoned for residential development in 2015 following the decision on Private Plan Change 12. The development of the peninsula is governed by the Rangitahi Structure Plan and is split into 7 different precinct areas (A to G), each with its own identified neighbourhood character and specified sets of key elements for achieving these outcomes.
To date, Precinct’s A, B and D have been consented to enable development of a total of 259 residential lots, 3 mixed use lots, 6 comprehensive residential development lots, 1 commercial lot, 6 recreation reserves, 2 local purpose drainage reserves, a series of integrated walkways and cycle ways, several shared access lots and roading network.
A new consented bulk water main from Te Hutewai Reservoir running through the development to Opotoru / Wainui Rd intersection has been laid and is currently going through testing phases. The water main will service the Rangitahi Peninsula as well as providing security of supply for the rest of Raglan. A new wastewater pump station to service the Rangitahi Peninsula is nearing completion and a dedicated new wastewater rising main from the new pump station to the Raglan wastewater treatment plant has been laid and tested.
Work is well underway with the development of Precinct A at the head of the peninsula with completion expected to occur in April 2020. The construction of Precinct B has also begun and is expected to be completed by June 2020.
As part of the development, Opotoru Road has been upgraded and new causeways and bridge constructed providing access to the peninsula. The bridge is expected to be open to the public once Precinct A is completed.
All the lots in Precinct A have been sold and most of the lots in Precinct B have also been presold.
