Proposed Amendments to the Tūhaitara Coastal Reserve and Waikuku Beach Reserves Management Plan

Reserves Act 1977

 

Public notice date: Saturday 5th March 2022

Closing and time: Friday 6th May 2022, 5PM

 

Pursuant to section 41(9) of the Reserves Act 1977, Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara Trust herby notifies its intention to amend the Tūhaitara Coastal Reserve and Waikuku Beach Reserves Management Plan.

The purpose of the amendments are to:

  1. remove the Waikuku Beach Reserves from the Management Plan. These reserves will be subject to a new management plan prepared by the Waimakariri District Council which is the responsible entity.

  2. Include Te Kōhanga Wetlands and Kaitiritiri Ridge within the Management Plan. These are ecologically and culturally significant reserves established through the development of Pegasus town and transferred into the ownership of Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara Trust in 2017. The future use and management of these two areas has been prescribed in a Deed of Governance; the outcomes and activities of which are consistent with Tūhaitara Coastal Reserve Management Plan.

  3. Include Pines Beach and Kairaki Regeneration Areas. These land parcels were identified in the Waimakariri Residential Red Zone Recovery Plan for divestment from the Crown to the Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara Trust for management as part of the Tūhaitara Coastal Reserve.

Including these areas into the Tūhaitara Coastal Reserve Management Plan will provide for a consistent approach to management and better achievement of outcomes which are ecologically integrated.
