Mauao/Mount Maunganui Ward

Mount Maunganui is steeped in history and has been cherished for generations, from the original inhabitants of the area, to locals and visitors today. The mauri of this whenua and the reverence in which it is held will continue to be respected. With this foundation we can shape the future to accommodate the needs and aspirations of our community now, and for future generations.

There’s no doubt the Mount Maunganui area is getting busier and we’re getting busier too, improving roads and making them safer, building better infrastructure for cycling, public transport, and pedestrians, and upgrading parks, facilities, and public spaces for everyone’s enjoyment now and in the future.

It’s all about balance. There will be changes but we will respect where we’ve come from and what people love about the Mount while focusing on the practical needs of our community, supporting business and industry, and enhancing our natural environment.

This ward is home to over 16,000 people and includes Mount Maunganui, Omanu, Bayfair, and Matapihi. It forms part of the coastal strip and includes Mauao which is an iconic cultural, historic, and geographical feature. This ward has a focus on leisure and tourism. It faces increased tsunami risk, sea level rise, and coastal hazards due to its location.
