Pukekura (Taiaroa Head) Reserves Management Plan


March 2013

View a copy of the Pukekura (Taiaroa Head) Reserves Management Plan.


Pukekura is made up of a number of reserves with various reserve classifications administered under the Reserves Act 1977, Wildlife Act 1953 and the Conservation Act 1987.

This draft Pukekura Management Plan, which encompasses all the reserves, ensures that the entire headland is managed in an integrated and consistent way by manawhenua and the administering bodies. Representatives of the Korako Karetai Trust, Te Rūnanga o Ōtākou, the Department of Conservation and the Dunedin City Council have jointly produced this comprehensive Management Plan for Pukekura.

The Management Plan provides a policy framework for decisions relating to the management and development of Pukekura. Prioritising values and identifying 'Guiding Principles' ensures that Pukekura is sensitively managed and provides for all the values and uses of the headland.
