PBRA financial year

This is changing to year end on 31/10 to allow time for financial auditing before the AGM.


The installation of the security cameras by PBRA were completed some time ago and are proving a useful monitoring tool for the Police.

Volunteers needed please!

Pukehina Beach Ratepayers Association has a vehicle for use by volunteers who patrol the local areas frequently, during the day and night, looking out for suspicious behaviour. It has been very successful in crime prevention and is a real benefit to our community. The operational cost of the vehicle is funded by sponsorship.

This is seen by the police as a huge deterrent to the criminal element and the Association is proud to be actively supporting this organisation.

There is always a need for more volunteers to make our community more secure - please contact Rex on 07 533 4345 for more information and an understanding of the patrol activity.

It is a very effective but passive role assisting to secure a safer community.

Septic Tank Cleaning

Note: When buying property it is “buyer beware” and part of the due diligence process to have the tank inspected and cleaned. It is recommended by WBoP District Council to have tanks cleaned /emptied every two years.
