The Pinehaven Stream is jointly administered by Greater Wellington Regional Council and Upper Hutt City Council. Greater Wellington manages the reach from the Whitemans Road Culvert to the Pinehaven Reserve and Upper Hutt manages the reaches upstream from the reserve. Maintenance activities include removing obstacles from the channel (such as trees). Erosion repair is the responsibility of the landowner, although we are happy to provide advice on request.
The Pinehaven Stream Flood Improvement Works, part of the Floodplain Management Plan, are starting soon. On behalf of Greater Wellington Regional Council and the Upper Hutt City Council, Wellington Water is managing the delivery of this project. Find out about updates on design, consenting and subsequent construction.
The Pinehaven Stream Floodplain Management Plan was adopted by Council on 29 June 2016. You can download a copy of the plan below or alternatively summary posters prepared for consultation about the plan.
One of the outcomes of the plan was to include the flood hazard maps in the Upper Hutt District Plan.
Plan Change 42 (Mangaroa and Pinehaven Flood Hazard Extents) to the Upper Hutt City Council District Plan became operative on 12 September 2019. This followed resolution or withdrawal of all appeals to the Plan Change. For further information refer to UHCC PC 42.
