Consultation has concluded

Help shape the future of Mairangi Bay Reserves.

What we proposed

Hibiscus and Bays Local Board is reviewing the existing Mairangi Bay Reserves Management Plan (2015).

The plan review seeks to reduce environmental impacts on the reserve, including:

  • coastal hazards
  • storm surges
  • rising sea-levels.

Focus of the plan review

The review will focus on updating the concept plan within the management plan (and any wording in the management plan associated with the concept plan). The concept plan outlines the spatial configuration of the beach reserves, which is put at risk by climate change and associated rising sea levels.

The updated management plan will impact the spatial layout of the reserve, including:

  • the surf club
  • associated surf club storage
  • sea wall location.

The existing 2015 management plan has already confirmed the intention to relocate Montrose Terrace within the reserve to the west (landward).

What we wanted your feedback on

We wanted to know your opinion about:

  • relocation of the surf club
  • relocation of the sea wall
  • changes you want to see on the reserve given the growing threat of coastal hazards, storm surges and flooding
  • changes you do not want to see on the reserve.

When you could have your say

The consultation was open from 24 August to 1 October 2023.
