The inaugural meeting of the Brooks Road Community Group (later changed to Brooks Area Community Group) was held in the Waipu Coronation Hall. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the community about NZTA’s plans to construct a Brynderwyn Bypass and potentially form a group. Jim Sephton and Ida Dowling from NZTA and Dr Shane Reti, National MP for Whangarei attended to the meeting. Prior to the meeting, flyers had been put into local’s mailboxes and posters put up in local businesses in Waipu.
