  • PGF funded initiative to create jobs quickly following Covid-19.

The Details

Hayden managed Kaipara District Council’s $2.87m Accelerated Work Package, part of the PGF funded Te Tai Tokerau Redeployment Package. This central government initiative is aimed at providing urgent economic relief for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, through immediate work opportunities for local people and businesses. Approximately 40 jobs were quickly created in this group of projects. 

One of the projects involved replanting at the Mangawhai Community Park. This project supported the Ngā Uri o Hau Native Nursery, which is proudly owned by Te Uri o Hau. They  ecosource all of their collection, which means the mānuka, tī kōuka (cabbage tree) and the harakeke (flax) going into the park have been grown in their nursery from seeds harvested from the Mangawhai area.  Find out more about their local nursery and the work they do at In the meantime Ngā Uri o Hau are also growing and looking after more than 17,000 plants for the park, and these will be planted as soon as the weather allows next year. 

Roadside improvements have been undertaken, such as dangerous tree removal, self-seeded tree removal, noxious weed spraying, as well as a new footpath in Matakohe. This work will improve the visual appeal of the areas, improve safety, and reduce need for future maintenance. 

Work has also included litter collections along Baylys Coast Road, Parore West Road, Waihue Road, and Tangowahine Valley Road.
