Waiwhetu

 

Waiwhetu.jpg

Location

Waiwhetu is located on the eastern side of the Valley and has one state primary school as well as a prestigious Catholic primary school and is zoned for both Hutt Intermediate and Hutt Valley High School.

Cambridge Estate is an exciting new flat land subdivision in Waiwhetu, Lower Hutt which are located in Grenville Street, Waiwhetu, on the old Waiwhetu School site, this is the largest flat land subdivision in Lower Hutt since the Orr Crescent sections were developed in the 1960’s, and it could be the last.

Most subdivisions have been 'house and land' subdivisions but Cambridge Estate offers land only, allowing owners to build what they want and the option to hold the land until they are ready to build.

The zoning is General Residential medium density and therefore site coverage can be up to 40% as of right. Cambridge Estate is a unique offering and with its fine alluvial soil and restrictive covenants, it is likely to become a street with beautiful gardens and attractive homes. This is a leafy suburb in a great location.

Facilities

Waiwhetu has a good selection of shops and a café and is well serviced by public transportation including buses and trains. Waiwhetu also has two parks, including Te Whit Park, which are excellent places to go walking with picnicking areas along the Waiwhetu stream. There is also public access to Haywards Reserve which has beautiful scenic bush tracks that link between Whites Line East and Mawson Street.

Between the 1820s and 1835, the people of the Te Ati Awa tribe migrated to the Wellington region from Taranaki and in 1960 the Waiwhetu Marae was opened. Today, the traditional carved marae, Te Atia Awa is currently available for seminars, functions and educational visits.

Historic Facts

Waiwhetu in Maori means ‘star reflecting water’ and was the name of the old Maori pa site. The mid 1840s saw the Maori move their pa inland where it remains today. In the 1880s, Chinese market gardeners started up in the Waiwhetu area, but it wasn’t until the 1920s with the advent of the railway line that Waiwhetu quickly developed into a residential suburb.
