The Pinehaven Stream is jointly administered by Greater Wellington Regional Council and Upper Hutt City Council. Greater Wellington manages the reach from the Whitemans Valley Road Culvert to the Pinehaven Reserve and Upper Hutt manages the reaches upstream from the reserve. Maintenance activities include removing obstacles from the channel (such as trees). Erosion repair is the responsibility of the landowner, although we are happy to provide advice on request.
The Pinehaven Stream Floodplain Management Plan was endorsed by Council on 29 June 2016. You can download a copy of the plan below or alternatively summary posters prepared for consultation about the plan.
Considered options for flood risk management
Between 2010 and 2012 options for flood risk management were developed. These were further developed with the community between 2012 and 2014. The material showing a range of options for flood risk management released in 2012 is presented below.
