Verse of The Day
“E matau ana hoki tatou na wai tenei kupu, Maku te rapu utu; maku te hoatu utu, e ai ta te Ariki: me tenei ano, E whakawa te Ariki mo tana iwi. He mea mataku te taka ki roto ki nga ringaringa o te Atua ora.” (Hebrews 10:30-31)

Napier hospital site sections up for grabs PDF Print
User Rating: / 3
Todd Property Group

NEW DEVELOPMENT: The view from Hospital Hill is stunning.

The first sections at the new Napier Hill residential development on the landmark site of the former hospital site have gone on the market this week.

Todd Property Group bought the site in 2011 for development.

The sale of the facility returned $5.1 million to the Hawke's Bay District Health Board, much of which would be spent on the region's new mental health inpatient unit, now under construction.

Todd group's managing director, Evan Davies, said it was exciting to see the Hospital Hill site, which had sat vacant for 15 years, gradually being transformed into a unique and appealing new residential community.

"We are really pleased to be able to offer people a stake in this remarkable new development that will revitalise the entire area and community," he said.

A house on the beach in Ngunguru

The Tutukaka coast is just north of Whangarei (the city 45 minutes south of Opua) and is a great outing when you’re going between the two places. There’s a loop off the main highway, and if you just stayed in your car, you could drive it in less than an hour, but you’d miss some wonderful stuff. To really see it, you’ll have to do some parking and walking. I’d give it a good 3 hours or more.

We started from the south end of the loop, taking the turnoff towards the town of Tutukaka. The drive took us through the beautiful pastures of Glenbervie and its old stone walls. About 20 minutes later, we arrived at the small town of Ngunguru, located on a river estuary just inland from the coast. (No, I can’t pronounce it.)

The redevelopment of the old Napier Hospital is well underway PDF Print

Saturday, 07 September 2013

Work is well underway in the first stage of the Todd Property Group's redevelopment of the five-hectare former Napier Hospital site.

The Napier City Council approved the Auckland-based company's plans for eight residential sections at the western end of the site. Apart from one lot accessed off Burke Street, the access to the freehold sections will be from Hospital Terrace which the developers propose to widen.

Stage 1, encompassing an area of 21,557sq m, involves the demolition of the former single-storey James Foley ward.

Low to mid-rise buildings on the eastern side of the former hospital site are also to be demolished in preparation for subsequent redevelopment of the larger site.

Todd Property secured the land and its 17 buildings two years ago in a transaction that saw it transfer 113 hectares at Ngunguru Spit in Northland to Department of Conservation ownership.

[Sophie Edwards] has worked with Maori, the Whangarei Native Bird Recovery Centre, the Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society, G.E. Free Northland and the Tutukaka Coast Residents and Ratepayers Association.

Five people received red-carpet treatment when they were presented with Whangarei District Council civic honours awards at a special function in the council chambers.

The five - Des Coutts, Fred and Mary Field, Merv Rusk and Sophie Edwards - joined an illustrious roll of citizens recognised for their community service since civic honours were first awarded by the former Whangarei City Council in 1987 and continued by the district council since 1992.

Police are urging Northland boat owners to go to extra lengths to secure their boats.

This comes after a spate of incidents where boats and outboard motors have been stolen in the Whangarei and Kaipara districts.

In the past two weeks, five outboard motors have been reported stolen in Matapouri, Tutukaka and Dargaville.

Police say the thieves have been carrying out their crimes during the night and targeting boats that have been parked on driveways.

Safety concerns caused by rapidly shifting sands and exposed rocks have prompted a local authority decision to remove the navigation lights on the beacons at the harbour entrance to Ngunguru.

Jim Lyle, the Northland Regional Council's Opua-based Regional Harbourmaster, says ongoing, large-scale movement of the sand in the area meant the lights no longer marked the actual channel entrance and they would be removed today to deter people from attempting to enter at night.
