Flaxmere Commuinity Plan 2022 - 2025

This three year plan was led by the Flaxmere Planning Committee and community and supported by the Hastings District Council. The plan was developed in an unprecented environment, where the global COVID-19 pandemic was presenting challenges to whānau wellbing and community cohesion. Despite the challenges, the community engaged to make sure they were heard on what they wanted for their future. The plan delivery will be overseen by the Flaxmere Planning Committee on behalf of the community, at the same time encouraging all community members to get involved with any or all of the actions.

Flaxmere West Community Plan

Heretaunga Locality Plan

The Heretaunga Locality Plan is a high-level preliminary plan outlining the immediate priorities and actions that will enable communities to stand strong again and lay the framework for Heretaunga to build back better and more resilient. The plan has six main focus areas – recovery transition, community and whānau wellbeing, resilient infrastructure, primary sector, economic growth and environmental resilience.

Heritage Trees and Items

This part of the District Plan specifically addresses heritage resources (heritage items and historic areas) and trees which have heritage value.

Landmarks Development Plan 2011

The Landmarks Development Plan, adopted in 2000 was seen to be a working document. It was intended that the Landmarks philosophy and concepts would evolve as implementation of the initiatives detailed in the Plan occurred, and as community awareness and demand strengthened and grew. This revised plan may be considered an ‘abridged version’, to make it more readable and accessible to all. It does not seek to replicate all of the information in the original plan, rather it reaffirms the key themes and priorities, and the design elements identified as important to achieving the Landmarks philosophy.

Papakainga Guide

This Guide clearly defines the process and provides whanau with a resource to support them to realise their papakainga aspirations. The Guide is based on the Māori philosophical approach of whanau, whenua, whare and incorporates appropriate whakatauaki throughout.

Te Awa o te Atua Weaving Flax Planting Plans

Please find attached the planting plans for the weaving flax at Te Awa o te Atua, located at the Longlands Road roundabout. The flax species are from the Rene Orchiston Collection.

Waimarama Community Plan 2013

Waimarama is iconic to Hawke’s Bay and is recognised as being the premier coastal location in the region. Underpinning this is the mana whenua; their relationship with the resources and the natural environment is key to the spirit of Waimarama. The community’s vision is that this unique environment should be preserved and that all development should be sustainably managed. The plan has a central goal of producing a framework that will make Waimarama an even better place to live and visit.
