Very Large Puhoi/Ahuroa Subdivision Public Meeting THIS TUESDAY

Hello Grapevine

This coming Tuesday the 27th of September from 5pm to 7pm there will be a public meeting at the Puhoi Sports Club to provide residents with information about the very large subdivision proposed for our area. Staff from Beca (the consultancy who have developed the proposal on behalf of the owners API) will also engage in a Q+A session on any topics related to the subdivision.

Please come along to get yourselves informed and to find out how it will affect our area.

Asia Pacific International (API) are planning to develop a very large subdivision on old Carter Holt forestry land from Puhoi to the north and west, bounded by SH1, Ahuroa Road and stretching well beyond Moirs Hill Road.

The proposal is to create 207 housing lots over an area of 1,300 hectares (3,200 acres).

A resource consent application has recently been notified by Auckland Council so there is a window of opportunity for residents to make submissions in order to change, limit, improve or otherwise alter the proposal.

This information and Q+A session provides an opportunity for residents to be informed about the proposed development, and to help you decide whether you wish to make a submission on the resource consent. The closing date for submissions is 5pm, Monday 10th October, so it’s not far away.

This link takes you to the Council website where all the documentation for the resource consent is available

Following the public meeting, the Puhoi Community Forum will meet at its normal time of 7.30pm, and this proposal is on the agenda to discuss for those who wish to stay on and contribute.

For any questions regarding the Public Information meeting contact:

StrataNet to Increase Internet Speeds

Hi everyone,

Whether you are an existing StrataNet customer or are considering joining our network, you will probably be interested to learn that we have faster plans coming soon!

We are going to be offering new “Ultra” wireless plans with speeds of up to 30 Mb/s download and 10 Mb/s upload. While we can’t yet give exact timeframes of when your area will be upgraded, we are going to start trials in the next few weeks. We’re hoping to have the upgrades rolled out network-wide by the end of this year – we will email you when this service becomes available to you.

Ideally, most of our customers will be able to receive our new Ultra plans once they go live, however in some cases your dish may need to be upgraded. We will have a better idea if your equipment needs upgrading at the conclusion of our trials – we’ll let you know if this is the case for your address.

We are also working hard to improve network reliability and consistency. A few pockets of areas have been experiencing slow-downs in peak times which will soon be resolved. We are currently rebuilding our network from the ground up, which will give us both greater capacity and reliability when the new network goes live.

For further updates, please check out our Facebook page ‘StrataNet NZ’ ( or our Twitter feed on @StrataNetNZ ( and we will endeavor to post our progress.

We thank you for your attention and we look forward to delivering you the next generation of wireless internet!

Kind regards, The team at StrataNet.
