Exciting times ahead ! We are nearing the start of construction on Tupua Horo Nuku, the Eastern Bays Shared Path which will create a safer environment for walking and cycling around the bays, enabling more active transport to reduce our carbon emissions. The construction will also improve the resilience of the road to help combat sea level rise and climate change.

In 2014 the Eastbourne Community Board conducted a survey of Eastbourne and the Bays to gauge the wellbeing and satisfaction of the residents and to identify issues of importance to the community.
