One of Council's responsibilities under the Reserves Act 1977 is to manage our reserves effectively. The Reserves Act requires Council to have a Reserve Management Plan for every reserve.
What is a Reserve Management Plan?
Reserve Management Plans set out how Council intends to develop, maintain and protect our reserves. They help establish how we will balance the protection of natural resources with recreational opportunities for the community.
Reserve Management Plans contain the Council's objectives and policies that relate to the reserve, plus specific actions and concept plans.
Reserve Management Plans are subject to continuous review to adapt to changing circumstances.
How can you be involved in the Reserve Management Plan review process?
- when a Reserve Management Plan is under review you may contribute to its development
- we publicly notify the development of all Reserve Management Plans through Our City Views and the local newspapers
- the initial submission phase is publicly advertised
- following this, public workshops are held which you may attend
- there will be a submission phase – you may make a submission
- you may also attend the hearing of submissions by Council
For further information on Reserve Management Plans, contact Sonya Baird (Recreation Planner) on 07 577 7000.
