BOP Coast Care
The Pukehina Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association hold a resource consent through Bay of Plenty Regional Council to do remedial work on the beach in the event of significant erosion. All ratepayers pay into a targeted rate held by Western BOP District Council to fund this work.
Properties on the beachfront pay $46.02 and those on the inland side of Pukehina Parade pay $8.23 per year.
There are two types of work/mahi we are currently undertaking under the guidance of coastal experts.
1. Push up of sand in areas where the beach does not repair after storm events
2. Re-shaping work to limit the angle of the dune and create a more resilient dune for the long-term.
In both areas of mahi, Spinifex and Pingao are planted along the top edge and landward of the dune and send runners down to trap sand and help build a resilient dune system.

Know your property boundaries
Please ensure you know the rules around what you can and cannot do if you own a beachfront property. This area is called the Primary risk zone and therefore resource consent may be required for earthworks etc
