Kairaki Beach : future recreational development?

A fellow student shared my interest in the Pines/Kairaki Beach area. He was interested in the potential physical development and maintenance of the Reserves. I hope my study may be able to complement any study he undertakes. The study has been divided into three sections. The first section is a short history, dealing mainly with the recreational aspects of Kairaki. The second is concerned with the present - a description of the area as it is in the 1980's, illustrated with many photographs. Results of a survey conducted over the Christmas-New Year period, 1984/85, are included in this section.
