History and why this is proposed:

The Mangawhai Community Plan was consulted upon and accepted by Council in February 2018 from the Mangawhai Community Plan Advisory Panel and was adopted by Council as part of the Long Term Plan at the meeting in June 2018. The MCP number one transport initiative was to:

‘…fix “pain points” in the network (notably the two intersections at the Village shops) but otherwise use cycling and walking to improve connectivity.

The intent is to slow traffic and life down generally when people are in Mangawhai. Roundabouts are the preferred mechanism for improving vehicle flow at intersections, while keeping movement at a reasonable speed that promotes the slow pace and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

As a result of this consultation and sign off by Council the intersection improvement work and shared path were included in the 2018 to 2021 Long Term Plan.
