Kopututea Co-Management Plan
This document is the outcome of a co-management process between the Kopututea Trustees and Gisborne District Council. The Trustees are the registered proprietors of the Kopututea title and have made the site accessible to the community and visitors.
Kopututea is a stretch of dune landscape stretching for 7 kilometres along the Pacific Ocean, south of the developed area of Gisborne city towards Makaraka and Manutuke to the mouth of the Waipaoa River. This area is in private ownership, but has kindly been made available to the public for many years, and will continue through this co-management plan and the relationship between Kopututea Trustees and Gisborne District Council.
