Welcome to the Little Shoal Bay Protection Society (LSBPS).

LSBPS acts as a guardian of the Bay, to ensure that the natural environment is protected and enhanced, and that no inappropriate development takes place on this precious oasis of green open space. In the years since our organisation was set up, there have many attempts to encroach on what is seen as ‘empty’ and therefore ‘available’ open space.We on the other hand, see the open space as precious for families, children and individuals to enjoy in this ever more crowded urban environment and we will do our best on your behalf to see that it remains so.

Beach and Coastline Clean-up

We invite you to join us for a community clean-up of the beaches and coastline on

Sunday 3rd December 2017 at 11.30am, meet near the Sea Scout Hall, LSB.

We aim to cover the coastline between Fishermans Wharf and Birkenhead Wharf, and around to Chelsea Bay along with associated reserves and parks (Dudding Reserve, Hinemoa Park etc) – so the more helpers the better! Disposable gloves and rubbish bags will be provided.  Please wear suitable clothing and footwear (gumboots if you have them)  – remembering your sunblock and a hat.

After the clean-up there will be a BBQ and drinks for volunteers – we hope you can stay for this to enjoy some social time.

Event arranged by the Birkenhead Residents Association and Little Shoal Bay Protection Society and supported Birkenhead Sea Scouts Group, Northcote Birkenhead Yacht Club, Friends of Le Roys Bush, Beyond the Fence and the Willow Bay & Needles Eye groups.

This event has been made possible by the generosity of our sponsors, Northcote Tavern, New World Birkenhead, Countdown Birkenhead, and the Auckland Council.

The weather forecast is fine but in case of unfavourable weather conditions, please check bra.org.nz website or the BRA Facebook page for updates and/or instructions.
