Place naming

What is proposed?

The proposal is to approve a recorded unofficial name Ngāmoko Stream as the official place name of a small and partially tidal stream that flows into Little Bay at Waikawau Bay on the Coromandel Peninsula. An alternative recorded name for the same feature, Ngaure Stream, would no longer apply.


The Board considered this proposal report at its hui on 2 December 2022. The proposal is notified for one month so that the public can make submissions supporting or objecting to the name.
