The Waiatarua Ratepayers and Residents Association, (WRRA) is often pronounced by locals as “The Warra”, or “Tha Wurra” depending on the Kiwiness of your accent.

It is a non-profit Incorporated Society formed in 1964.

The original motive for formation of the WRRA was to lobby against Auckland Council rate rises which unfairly increased rural rates.

All locals are encouraged to become members to ensure they stay in touch with what is going on in Waiatarua.
