Papamoa’s residents and ratepayers group

We are one of the largest and influential community voices in Tauranga City. Recent achievements include persuading Tauranga City Council to reconsider tsunami sirens, getting work on evacuation routes started and the retention of the Mount-Papamoa Ward in local elections. We were also the venue for the first community briefing by officials on the Rena grounding.

Our meetings feature relevant and informative guest speakers as well as City Councillors. These meetings provide an excellent forum for members to raise their concerns with each other and voice their opinions directly to leaders in our community.

Come along to one of our meetings and see for yourself.
We look forward to meeting you.
