Verse of The Day
“Ko tenei hei whakaaro mo koutou, ko tera i a Karaiti Ihu: Ahakoa hoki i a ia te ahua o te Atua, kihai i meinga e ia te rite ki te Atua hei taonga kapo mai; Engari i mea i a ia ano kia poaha, ka mau ki te ahua o te pononga, ka meinga kia rite ki te tangata; A ka kitea nei tona ahua e rite ana ki to te tangata, ka whakapapaku ia i a ia, ka meinga kia ngohengohe ahakoa ki te mate, ae ra, ki te mate o te ripeka.” (Philippians 2:5-8)

The sleepy spa town of Waiwera, 30 minutes north of Auckland, is set to be transformed beyond recognition if a development scheme valued at up to $700 million gets the go-ahead.

The population of 250 will soar to around 2000 under the proposed scheme, which will include a five-star apartment/hotel facility, luxury apartments, health spa, restaurants, bars and shops.

More than 12ha of land on hills overlooking the village have been earmarked for apartments - to be known as Waiwera Heights.

Waiwera, known for its hot pools and water slides, will be redeveloped into a town which the developers say will be a flagship for urban design. They hope to recreate its original character as an upmarket spa, connected by water access to Auckland.
