Mauao (The Mount) Management Plan

Mauao is a site of indisputable cultural significance and of great value to a wide range of people. It forms part of a significant cultural landscape which is acknowledged in its classification as a Historic and Recreational Reserve.

Mauao has a significant number of administration and management issues which were addressed in the management plan including its strong cultural and sacred significance to the iwi; historical attributes; commercial and recreational demands; pest and noxious weed control and traffic and pedestrian management. The project area also encompassed the Surf Club, Thermal Pools and Camping Ground with their conflicting commercial and recreational demands.
