WCC has already voted at full Council to monitor the impacts of motorised recreation around the South Coast and will be setting up strategic monitoring sites in the near future.
In addition, the road from Owhiro Quarry around to Red Rocks will no longer be maintained, and allowed to deteriorate to 4WD and Quad standard.
You can help!
No matter what the temptation, follow the Tread Lightly! principles. DO NOT DEVIATE FROM THE TRACK.
Do not play on the sand dunes, and please, please make sure you take all your rubbish home with you.
Be polite to other users, especially pedestrians. Slow down and be prepared to stop if necessary. A warm smile and a friendly wave will do more for our credibility than anything else we can do.
