Warkworth Spatial Plan Consultation Document

One Warkworth Business Association - Friday, June 30, 2017

Concerned about the rate of development in Warkworth, and Council’s delay to start planning for growth, a group of locals has prepared a proposal on the potential use of land in future urban areas.

Spatial Plan Consultation Document

Spatial Plan Diagram

The proposal is intended to generate community thought, discussion and feedback to inform a community-led spatial plan, which will be submitted to Council so it can be used for detailed structure planning and future zone changes. 

The proposal aims to speed up the whole process, which is vitally important if Warkworth has any hope of developing in a coordinated way.

Based on what is known about the area from the Unitary Plan’s land-use rules and what key agencies like NZTA, Auckland Transport and the Ministry of Education are currently planning, the group’s proposal considers:

  •         routes for arterial roads, cycleways, walkways and greenway trails
  •         broad areas for residential, open space, and industrial land use
  •         general locations for core community facilities e.g. schools and active recreational areas
  •         general locations for future commercial centres
  •         the interrelationships between all the above

The group of nine came together to pool their knowledge of the local area and their expertise in town planning, engineering, and development to consider how Warkworth can reach its fullest potential. 

It has involved meeting with Council officers, elected members and various agencies, as well as attending meetings with the community forum, which is looking at plans for the town centre and riverbank.

Any community groups or organisations that would like a presentation about the proposal can request via email to 

Consultation will run until midnight Sunday, 6 August 2017.

The spatial plan is a high-level, non-statutory planning document that aims to provide a framework to guide future planning and development decisions in a manner that is supported by our community.

This group is independent of One Warkworth. 

Group members have made a commitment that this exercise has been undertaken in utmost good faith and in a holistic manner, for the betterment of the community at large and not to directly or indirectly benefit any vested interests including those of clients.

One Warkworth Manager - introducing Murray Chapman

One Warkworth Business Association - Monday, January 23, 2017

      As I look back over my first week as the Manager of One Warkworth I am excited about the possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead.  We already have a substantial membership base that will continue to grow.  As our membership grows it will give everyone a chance to not only have their voice heard at local and central Govt level, but it will open up more and more opportunities for each of you to do more business with each other.
I am fortunate to have had a long career with the Auckland Chamber of Commerce.  One of the comments which I often got when we talked about lobbying Council or Government was, “I don’t need to be a member because you will lobby anyway”.  There is some truth in that.  But the reality is that a business organisation with 25% of their base as members has very little impact when it comes to lobbying.  The One Warkworth Business Association with 85% plus of their base as members has some real power!

I will be visiting as many of our members as possible over the next two months and I welcome any feedback or comments you may have on services, events or issues you would like to see One Warkworth tackle or put on for you.  We will be putting a program of events out shortly and I encourage everyone to get either yourself or your staff involved as much as possible.
The Buy Local promotion is designed to bring more business through your doors and again I would encourage you to get behind it.  Get your business listed on our web directory if you haven’t already, encourage your neighbour to join if they are not already members, and use the wonderful network of local businesses we have here.
Thank you to those businesses that I have spoken to so far for the warm welcome I have received; it really has been appreciated.  I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible as quickly as possible.
