Mount Maunganui Reserves Management Plans

Mauao (Mt Maunganui), Main Beach, Moturiki (Leisure Island), Hopukiore (Mount Drury), Waikorire (Pilot Bay) are in the heart of Mount Maunganui.

The area attracts thousands of visitors each year and is renowned as one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand.

Two Reserve Management Plans have been developed for this area. The Coastal Reserve Management Plan was developed in 1998 and incorporated Mauao, the Main Beach, Papamoa, Moturiki, Hopukiore (Mt. Drury), and Pilot Bay. All parts of the plan were reviewed in 2013 in regards to the Main Beach, Papamoa, Moturiki, Hopukiore (Mt. Drury), and Pilot Bay. 

The 2013 plan is also called the Coastal Reserves Management Plan.

All references in the 1998 document now only apply to Mauao as follows:
