Rodney Local Board


About the Rodney area

The Rodney Local Board covers an extensive area in the north of the region. It includes Kawau Island and a mix of townships and varied rural industries. The main townships are Kumeu/Huapai, Helensville, Warkworth, Matakana and Wellsford.

Dairying, horticulture, winemaking, tourism and forestry are key parts of the rural economy. As a result of proximity to Auckland, lifestyle blocks, retirement housing and holiday homes are also very popular.

At the southern end of the board area is the Kaipara Harbour, the largest enclosed harbour in the southern hemisphere. Ngati Whatua Nga Rima o Kaipara has five marae in this area and a special relationship to the land and harbour.
