Work To Occur On Waipukurau's Ruataniwha Street Trees

Tuesday 15 May 2018

Following engagement with Ruataniwha Street retailers in Waipukurau in late 2017, work will start late in this week undertaking maintenance to the town centre’s Street trees.

In 2017, Waipukurau retailers raised a number of concerns about the street trees along Ruataniwha Street, including trees blocking shop signage, leaf-fall blocking gutters and roots damaging footpaths.  MED201819 Ruataniwha St trees

A survey among retailers in early 2018, identified that the majority of retailers would like to see the trees removed and replaced.  During the survey, retailers also suggested a number of new initiatives and concepts to reinvigorate Waipukurau’s town centre.

Taking into account the new ideas and initiatives proposed, Council has deferred any decision on the removal of the trees until the completion of the Community and Town Centre Planning programme, confirmed as part of Councils 2018 Long Term Plan.

Work is expected to take two days, with the contractor aiming to cause as little disruption to retailers and the community as possible.
