Wai­heke Lo­cal Board is ask­ing kayak own­ers to re­move kayaks that have been stored at Mat­a­pana Re­serve. A bro­ken dinghy rack on the fore­shore will be re­moved on Novem­ber 17 and any re­main­ing kayaks will be moved onto the grass re­serve for col­lec­tion. Lo­cal board chair­per­son Paulwalden said sev­eral ar­eas around the is­land are be­com­ing clut­tered with small ves­sels and one so­lu­tion might be to of­fer com­mu­nity kayaks. ‘‘It’s this crazy thing - we pro­vide kayak racks and sud­denly there are hun­dreds of kayaks on the beach and it’s not a par­tic­u­larly ap­pro­pri­ate use of pub­lic space,’’ he said.
