Council is intending to prepare a Neighbourhood Parks Reserve Management Plan which will outline the future use, management and development of the neighbourhood parks it administers across the district. This activity follows on from the Sports Parks Reserve Management Plan and General Reserve Policies Management Plan adopted by Council earlier this year.
Neighbourhood parks are passive spaces primarily provided for use by local communities for casual recreation, play, relaxation, community activity, links to other areas, or quiet open space.
Council, under s41 of the Reserves Act 1977, wishes to invite written suggestions on these plans. All suggestions received will be considered for inclusion in the draft reserve management plans which will be made available for public submission in the new year.
Have your say by 30 October
Tell us what you think about your local neighbourhood park, and your ideas for its future use, management and development. You can get involved by:
• entering it online at www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz/sayit
• emailing it to email@example.com
• posting it to Waikato District Council, 15 Galileo Street, Ngaruawahia 3720
• faxing it to (07) 824 8091
• delivering it to any Council Office or library.
Suggestions should clearly include your name, address, telephone number and email address.
The proposed list of reserves to be included in the draft Neighbourhood Parks Reserve Management plan can be viewed at www/waikatodistrict.govt.nz. This list will be confirmed when the draft plan has been prepared.
