Welcome to the Waihi Community Forum

The Waihi Community Forum was formed after the announcement of the proposed Golden Link Project including the Correnso underground mine in the east of Waihi. Since the announcement of Project Martha, the Forum, with support from Hauraki District Council and OceanaGold Waihi, will represent residents in the wider Waihi area.

This website will give you information on who we are, what we do, and lists the projects we've been involved with since this forum formed. You can also find copies of meeting minutes, our Terms of Reference, Correnso consent conditions, the Project Martha Property Policy and the Top Up application form.

Community Representative Vacancies

Expressions of interest are now being sought for two Community Representatives on the Waihi Community Forum.

The purpose of the Forum is to contribute towards a thriving and
sustainable community for those residents living close to OceanaGold Waihi's mining operations. There is provision for up to nine representatives: 

5 from the community

2 from Hauraki District Council 

2 from OceanaGold Waihi.

The Forum is most interested in applicants who are:

• community minded

• confident communicators

• constructive problem solvers

• Waihi residents (preference will be given to applicants from the proposed Rex and Martha areas)

You will need the flexibility and commitment to attend monthly meetings and will need to spend at least two hours a week on Forum matters.

If you are interested in becoming part of the team, please send a cover letter detailing the experience, strengths and skills you would bring to the position, a C.V (if you have one), completed application form and all contact details to: wcfinformation@gmail.com or write to WCF Coordinator, PO Box 54,
