Plant and animal pests are negatively impacting on the Piha Beach Reserve network and only minor work has been undertaken in the past to address this issue.  Wildland Consultants was engaged by Auckland Council to develop an ecological restoration plan for the Piha Beach Reserves during 2012.  An initial five year work programme has been developed using the ecological restoration plan and considering budget availability.

The project requires a long term programme for the removal of pest plants/weed and planting of eco-sourced native plants within the Piha Beach reserve network.  Pest plants include agapanthus, boneseed, lupin, gazania, climbing asparagus, and cape ivy. Animal pest control, mainly rabbits, will also be considered as part of the programme of works.

Work is proposed to take place in the following reserves:

  • North Piha Esplanade
  • Les Waygood Park
  • Piha Esplanade Reserve
  • North Piha Strand
  • Piha Domain

Please view the programme documents in the following ways:
