Improving Beach Haven’s coastal walkways

Published: 12 November 2019

A public consultation is now open for feedback on options to improve coastal connections in Beach Haven on Auckland’s North Shore.

Earlier this year, Kaipātiki Local Board approved $1.5m towards developing improved coastal connections in Beach Haven and have identified four options that they would like considered and ranked in order of preference.

The consultation aims to gather feedback to determine which is the highest priority option for the community.

Kaipātiki Local Board Chair John Gillon says there are some exciting and ambitious aspects to proposals which should excite locals.

“Our vision is to create a more accessible, friendly and visually stunning route from Tui Park, Shepherds Park, Hellyers Creek Reserve and on to Bayview, Eskdale Reserve and beyond,” says Gillon.

“Its appeal will reach beyond just those living in the immediate area, as it will provide a non-kauri alternative route when other local bush walks featuring kauri have been restricted or closed in our wider board area,” he says.
