Hahei Residents and Ratepayers Association
Delivering a Sustainable Hahei for you

The Hahei Resident and Ratepayers Association is a non-profit volunteer organisation whose primary objective is to safeguard, promote and conserve the interests of the Hahei residents and property owners.

We cover the area from Hot Water Beach to the Purangi, as shown the map.

With the rapidly growing number of tourists visiting Hahei, we do our best to find sustainable solutions that work for EVERYONE – bach owners, businesses, rural property owners, visitors – anyone that loves Hahei like we do!

We work closely with Thames Coromandel District Council, Waikato Regional Council, various central goverment departments such Department of Conservation, NZTA, Ministry of Tourism etc.

Our effectiveness is based on your support and ideas.  Please feel free to contact us at anytime.
