More details about the Rangitahi Project
Where is the Rangitahi peninsula? The peninsula is located 5-minutes’ drive (25 min walk) from the Raglan town centre. The main access to the peninsula will be via the newly built Rangitahi bridge located at the end of Opotoru Road in Raglan west which is opening late 2019.
How many stages/sections will there be in the future? There is a total of seven stages across 117 hectares of land. There will be a total of 550 sections. The entire development is estimated to be completed over 10-20years.
Who is the developer? The Rangitahi Peninsula is being developed by Rangitahi Limited, The directors of this company are two brothers David Peacocke and Mathew Peacocke. David and Mathew have farmed in the Waikato for more than 40 years as a family and have developed more than 70 sections in the Raglan District prior to The Rangitahi Project.
What size are the Rangitahi sections? The sections range from approximately 400m2 – 1300m2.
What is the average size of a Rangitahi section? the average size 530m2. You can view the section sizes in stage two via this link https://rangitahi.co.nz/come-and-explore/
Are they free hold titles? Yes. The sections are sold pre-construction and are subject to title.
What price are the sections? We have sold sections from $200,000. For current availability and pricing please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is different about The Rangitahi Project? We have a passion and appreciation for good urban design, we have designed every aspect of the peninsula with this in mind, creating high-quality public spaces and a welcoming environment for the community. We want the peninsula to be an extension of the Raglan community and to also protect the natural estuarine environment. The Houses on the peninsula will be built to meet a minimum of 6 stars using the New Zealand Green Building councils Homestar rating system.
Are there rules for building at Rangitahi? Yes, all homes built at Rangitahi will be approved by a Design review Panel, this is separate to the building consent process. Waikato District planning rules must also be aheared to. The Rangitahi design guidelines can be downloaded from the website via this link: https://rangitahi.co.nz/design-guidelines/
What services are provided? The sections are serviced with water, power, fibre optic internet, stormwater and wastewater connections. Sections that cannot gravity feed waste to the wastewater connection will require a low-pressure pump. More details about pump options can be provided to you upon request.
What costs are involved with connecting to the services provided? You can view the Waikato District Council Fees and Charges Document via this link https://www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz/your-council/fees-and-charges
Is Geo-technical information provided for the sections? We can provide a preliminary geo-technical report completed by CMW geo Sciences prior to construction taking place. Once the civil works are complete, we can provide a geo-technical site completion report.
What amenities will be developed for the Rangitahi community? There is a 20m Strip of land on the harbours edge that wraps around the entire peninsula where we have established walking tracks. In the future there will be over 15kms of tracks around the peninsula, mostly located on the water’s edge, but also linking between the stages through productive green spaces. We have plans for organic orchards and allotment style gardens to service the community with fresh produce.
Will there be any commercial activity on the Rangitahi peninsula? Yes, within stage one (also known as ‘The Village Core’) there are three ‘mixed-used’ lots which will have a variety of commercial, residential and recreational spaces. There will be more ‘mixed-use’ lots developed in future stages. In stage one we plan to build a cafe, small office or retail spaces and a recreational space for yoga, etc.
What is the style of landscaping at Rangitahi? We have chosen a material palette that blends with the natural west coast environment. There will be mostly native plants on the peninsula, with a focus on local species. Some of the trees are; Pohutawaka, Kowhai, Rewarewa and Nikau palms, Kauri, Kanuka, to name a few. Boffa Miskell designed the urban landscape design for stage one which will be continued through each stage.
