Meola Creek Restoration Projects

April 9th, 2009

After the Meola creek press release from the Auckland City Council in May 2008, STEPS worked together with Auckland City to develop a number of project briefs to address different aspects of Meola Creek problems.  Now we are looking for Partners and Sponsors to work with to complete these projects.  Attached is a summary of all the projects. If you are interested in working with us – please contact us via this web site.

One successful example of collaboration between STEPS and other organisations is shown here – “before” and “after”. The Roy Clements Treeway on Mt Albert Grammar school grounds has been planted by the community – and a boardwalk constructed by Metrowater during 2008. The new boardwalk is very popular – and a great community asset. Our thanks to MAGS and Metrowater for taking this step.
One immediate project which would improve the amenity of the upper creek and enhance ecological values – would be to “daylight” the creek – for examples where it has been done elsewhere see
