Aims of the Tamaki Drive Protection Society

TDPS aims to preserve Tamaki Drive as an outstanding scenic and recreational resource, and as a direct route into the city of Auckland.  The Society has a focus on the environmental and amenity values of Tamaki Drive which are crucial features of the coastal areas and the interface between land and water.  TDPS brings to public attention the necessity for preservation of the beaches, walkways, cycleways and roadways, and flora, through constant maintenance and improvement.  It does this through the medium of pamphlets and public meetings, and through submissions to authorities, which encourage local and national government bodies to value and care for Tamaki Drive.
