Wellington City Council has approved a Northern Reserves Management Plan that covers 106 parks, reserves and sportsgrounds in the northern suburbs between Ngauranga and Tawa.

Management framework

The plan provides the Council with a framework for day-to-day management and decision-making for these reserve areas over the next 10 years.

It also identifies future reserve requirements in new subdivisions such as Lincolnshire Farm and Stebbings Valley.

The plan takes a holistic view of the reserve network and its ecological, landscape, recreational and cultural values. It is aligned with the Northern Growth Management Framework.

Public consultation

Consultation on the draft Northern Reserves Management Plan took place from March to early May 2008.
