Correction to our use of the Field "Kaipatiki Creek restoration site" with Value "Reserve""

We have recently learned that about half the Kaipatiki Creek Restoration site of 1997-00, from roadside to stream in the upstream half of the site, has not been legally classified as a Reserve, though it is formally recognised as a Significant Ecological Area.

Many observations throughout the restoration site have been given the Field Value "Reserve". It should therefore be noted that many of these observations are in fact not within a legal Reserve, but streambanks/roadside "owned" by Auckland Transport. We will update this Field Value as appropriate to correct this.

We understand the "roadside" area has had no ecological survey or maintenance since road reconstruction in 1999, but in the future is to be managed by Auckland Council through the Ecocontract for Witheford Reserve.
