When the sand replenishment is complete the newly formed dunes will be planted with native dune plants, pingao and spinifex, to hold sand and help build the dune following storms.
Northland Regional Council will be inviting the community to take part.
The new sand dunes will then be fenced off. Two new public access structures will be constructed, one off Te Wairoa Street and another half way along the sandspit, and an existing one near Morrison Road will be repaired.
The improved access and fencing will help to protect the sand dunes.
