Blue Bay set to be lit up by end of March

Blue Bay

The spotlight is on Blue Bay Opoutama with the seaside subdivision set to be lit up by the end of next month.

Eastland Network New Zealand will reconnect all street lights with work including the reinstatement of cabling and lighting poles where they are needed.

Late last year the 35 sections were sold to individual tenders by mortgagee tender.

With section owners now keen to develop their sites the Wairoa District Council is pleased to have renewed interest in the beach front site.

Council chief executive Steven May says a community meeting for residents is planned which will provide an opportunity for information to be shared.

Water supply is a big ticket item and it could be between one and two years before council can recommission Blue Bay’s drinking water supply, depending on the community’s commitment to proposed scheme upgrade costs.

The current bore at Blue Bay is unsuitable for the provision of drinking water and water supply options, including a future bore, are being investigated.

Mr May said further investigations and options are being carried out and the cost of various options, which will need to comply with the current drinking water regulations, will be presented to residents once it is finalised.

"I know this delay is frustrating for the new land owners but council is committed to working in a collaborative way with this community and ensuring the pride in this community is enhanced," Mr May said.

Vegetation in road verges are being maintained and council has discussed with its contractor ongoing vegetation maintenance along walkways, the beach reserve and general reserve and costs around this are being considered.

Other improvement work being carried out includes replacing damaged street signs, repainting sight rails and removing graffiti with work to remove wild pine plantations set to begin in March.
