Wai Tahurangi (Avondale Stream) Sustainable Neighbourhood

 

The Wai Tahurangi SN is focussed around restoration of the Parahiku Stream, a tributary of the Avondale (Wai Tahurangi) Stream that flows through Brandon Reserve, La Rosa Gardens and private properties in Green Bay.

So far the neighbourhood consists of Godley Road, La Rosa Street, Stottholm Road and Taupo Street residents, Green Bay School staff, parents and students, BNZ volunteers and others.

Thanks to the neighbourhood, sections of the stream have been cleared of rubbish and obstacles, stream banks planted to prevent erosion and native bush in Brandon Reserve is now successfully regenerating. Several properties in the neighbourhood are working through Management plans for their own properties and have planted 150 natives so far this season.
