Care about Mangawhai?

Help protect our natural assets by taking our survey.

We are currently examining the long-term threats to our harbour
and coast, and their potential impact on the community. As part of the study, we are surveying how our natural resources and amenities are used by residents and visitors. Please help us by filling out the survey below. Thank you.



We work with Kaipara District Council to make rates fairer for the residents for Mangawhai.

We have researched the way rates are set in Mangawhai and what we can to do to make them fairer for us.  We will continue to work with KDC on this.

If you own a home in Mangawhai but are not enrolled on the KDC electoral roll you are entitled to vote in local body elections.  Download form links:
