The 774-hectare Abel Tasman Foreshore Scenic Reserve, established in January 2007, is administered by a committee of the Council Chief Executive and the DOC Nelson/Marlborough Conservator.

People have until Monday 8 August 2011 to make submissions on the draft management plan for the foreshore reserve. The new plan, when finalised, will guide and direct the reserve administration committee’s management of the foreshore.
