In 2021, NP Partners and local residents Harvey and Kaye Dunlop saw the opportunity to create better access to this special beach area. Through the Taranaki Foundation and working with the NPDC parks team and external contractors, their idea is now turned into a reality. More families from the community are now enjoying better beach access.

“We are delighted to be part of this project that now provides an attractive, safe and easy access for East End beach users. Through the Taranaki Foundation we were able to bring our vision to create a walkway in this special area for all of the community to use. From an NP Partners perspective, we were really impressed with how quickly and seamlessly the project moved from an idea to the excitement of it being completed.” – Harvey & Kaye Dunlop.
