Have your say on reserve management plan

15 October 2014

The Council has prepared a new draft reserve management plan for the 168 local parks, reserves and protected open spaces in the suburban areas between Khandallah and Miramar (including Makara).

These suburban reserves play an important part in making your neighbourhood a great place to live. There are limited opportunities to develop new parks within our established suburbs so we need to look after the ones we have, and ensure they meet the changing needs of our community.

The draft plan lays out how we will manage these suburban reserves effectively for the next 10 years, including playground and track provision, development and future use opportunities. The suburban reserves north of Khandallah are already covered in the Northern Reserves Management Plan.

We would like to get your feedback on the plan’s general direction and specific policies for each of the eight suburban sectors identified in the plan.

You have until 5pm, Friday 5 December to tell us what you think. To read the plan and make a submission go to Consultations - Draft Suburban Reserves Management Plan.
