Ōrewa Beach

Ensuring that future generations get to enjoy a day at the beach, the Ōrewa Beach Esplanade design project features in the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board agreement for the financial year 2022-23.

Adopted by the board at its June business meeting, the agreement sets out key priorities and projects for funding during the next financial year.

Along with funding to protect Ōrewa’s beach reserves and walkway, are several walkway upgrades such as Browns Bay’s Bushglen Reserve, and various playground upgrades across the local board area.

The community focus continues with funding allocated for two contestable grant rounds, community movie nights and to host a celebratory event for the many volunteers who give so readily of their time.

Elsewhere, environmental initiatives such as Centennial Park Bush Society ecological volunteers programme, community planting, annual pest plant and animal control, local park clean ups and environmental education programmes are supported.

The board also agreed to fund Trash Free Taiaotea and an industrial pollution prevention programme in Silverdale, designed to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and into waterways.

Chair Gary Brown says the local board has been working hard over several months to get the right balance of projects that benefit residents and fit the funding available.
