Environment Court Appeal Won For New Taurikura General Store, Whangarei Heads, New Zealand

Proprietors of the Taurikura General Store, Neil Engebretsen and Yu Min Song, are pleased to announce that following a successful Environment Court appeal, resource consent has been granted for a store and cafe at their new site at 2302 Whangarei Heads Road, Taurikura, Whangarei Heads.  


The new Taurikura Store and Cafe will be both a General Grocery Store and a licensed Cafe, with much improved access, parking, and store facilities in the front of the new building, and a comfortable cafe and outdoor deck in the rear.  


The new store will be located about 80 metres west (towards Whangarei) of the T-intersection with Taurikura Street and Whangarei Heads Road.  

Ten carparks, including one disabled carpark, and disabled access and toilet will be available at the new store.  All the store facilities you are used to, such as the Post Shop, general goods, frozen goods, fishing gear, bread, milk, daily papers, and Internet access will be available at the new site.  Extensive landscaping, planting, and acoustic protection for neighbours will be installed at the new site.  


Postal services are available, and site planting  is underway.  Neil and Yu Min have really appreciated the community's support for this cool new beach store development in Taurikura.  

Thanks also to the project team, architect Claire Furlong from ARTO ArchitectsRichardson Stevens Limited engineers, Dean Scanlen, traffic engineer from Engineering Outcomes Ltd, Peter Ibbotson, acoustic engineer from Marshall Day Acoustics, and Susan Harris planner and environmental scientist from GreenXperts Limited for all their work on this successful resource consent project.
