Reserve management plans

Reserve management plans set out how council intends to provide for and ensure the use, enjoyment, maintenance, protection, and preservation, as the case may require, and, to the extent resources permit, the development of reserve.

Reserve management plans contain statements that guide how council will manage its reserves. For example, they help establish how we will balance the protection of natural resources with recreational opportunities for the community. Reserve management plans are subject to continuous review to adapt to changing circumstances.

The Tauranga Reserves Management Plan was adopted in early 2019. This plan supersedes 14 earlier reserve management plans. If you’d like to access any of the earlier reserve management plans, contact the Strategic Policy and Planning team on 07 577 7000 or info@tauranga.govt.nz.
