Pukehina Ratepayers and Residents Association information

Kia ora!  We are an organisation made up of Pukehina community members, working together to promote and advance the interests and welfare of Ratepayers and Residents of Pukehina Beach.  


Together we are working to build a thriving, safe and resilient beach community.

Our objectives

  • To promote a safe and friendly Community that cares for the special environment and character of Pukehina Beach
  • To promote awareness and discussion on matters of interest to the Pukehina Community
  • To represent the views of ratepayers and residents of our local council
  • To manage and use Association funds to carry out the objectives and any other relevant projects or tasks.
  • To encourage ratepayers to become financial members of the Association and participate in activities.
  • To assist with the development and provision of excellent community facilities for everyone to enjoy

The annual cost of membership is small and we are working towards positive outcomes for all ratepayers and residents. More supporting members will result in more funds to use for the benefit of Pukehina and a greater community voice. Consider joining now!
