Paihia Township crop.jpg

Paihia's existing heritage precinct is limited to the St Paul's church and a few private properties. It does not recognise the broader context of the area, including the domain, gardens around Williams House, or heritage values of pre-1900 Māori origin along the foreshore, within scenic reserves, and other important historic sites located near the Horotutu Creek.

Limited feedback on the draft did not support a change to the current area. This further engagement will help us understand what area should be protected.
