This reserve is a scheduled archaeological and historic site due to its rich Maori and early European History. Nick was engaged to prepare concept development proposals and Stage 1 planting proposals, tender documents and site supervision. A particular feature of this site was the need to restore vegetation areas which had been badly damaged by toxic chemical contamination. The restoration included native plant assemblages of typical coastal monocotyledon shrubs and grasses which were resistant to the chemicals present. Project Status: Stage 1 completed.
