The Wairoa District Council exists so that residents and visitors alike can enjoy the community in which they live and visit, supported by local decision-making to promote the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of the Wairoa District in the present and for the future.
Wairoa is a beautiful town, positioned alongside the famous Wairoa River. The small town of Wairoa boasts a lifestyle absorbed in activity and a society rich in culture and heritage. Wairoa attracts visitors from far and wide.
Come and experience the culture, the atmosphere, and the renowned splendour of this region. Wairoa District Council is proud to represent this district and provide local services within it.
The Visual Identity Project is an opportunity to strengthen and unite the community and attract visitors to the Wairoa District. By developing a visual identity, Wairoa will be able to communicate its special character locally, regionally and internationally by using visual imagery.
The project will be carried out in three stages. Stage one is “Kohia nga whakaaro” (gathering your thoughts), will capture the thoughts and feelings of our community. In stage two the key findings of stage one will be used to develop the visual identity and relevant material that will be used in the third stage, the production of signage, promotional materials, tourism brochures etc. to promote the Wairoa District.
The aim of the visual identity is to represent our people, places, culture and history and to create a sense of place for the community and a positive image wherever the district is being promoted.

Wairoa District Council have made their call.
Wairoa District Council and the Maori Committee have made submissions to the Local Government Commission on the draft proposal to create one Hawke's Bay Council. Following hearing, the LGC will produce a final proposal. This is likely to result in a petition calling for a referendum, in which registered voters will have a chance to say 'YES' or 'NO' to amalgamation.
Wairoa District Council Environment Officer, Victor Minter, today issued a warning, advising members of the public not to swim or to gather fish in the Wairoa river.
