Warehouse Whakatane is wanting to extend the size of its build by 2,000 square metres to 5,300 square metres.

By the end of this month Warehouse Whakatane would have submitted their application to the Whakatane Council so building can start in January 2014 and the whole Warehouse building project completed in October 2014.

The Whakatane Council has to consider demolishing its buildings close to Warehouse to make a public walkway. Some car parks will disappear with the extension of the new Warehouse.

An once the two buildings are torn down then a new car park will established and that will cost $2.5 million. The cost has nothing to do with the building of Warehouse.

Kei te hiahia te Warehouse i Whakatane ki te whakawhanui i tona whare hoko ma te rua mano mita tapawha kia nunui ake ki te rima mano toru rau mita tapawha. Hei tenei marama o Hongongoi ka tuku te Warehouse i tana tono ki Te Kaunihera o Whakatane kia timata te hangatanga o te whare tapiri a te marama o Kohitatea rua mano ngahuru ma wha. Kei te tumanako a Warehouse ka mutu te whakahou o tona whare hei te marama o Whiringa-a-nuku rua mano ngahuru ma wha. Otira kia whakaae rano te kaupapa nei me turakina e Te Kaunihera o Whakatane etahi o nga whare tata rawa ki a Warehouse kia mahi i tetahi hikoi tumatanui. Ta te mea ka kore haere etahi o nga taunga waka whanau i te hangatanga o te whare hou nunui o Warehouse. Ara hoki ki te kitenga ko te taruki o nga whare e rua me te hanga i etahi taunga waka whanau hou ka piki te uara ki te rua ira rima miriona tara. Kare tenei uara e pa ana ki te hangatanga o te Warehouse.
