Tauranga has a variety of parks and reserves that play a vital role in the quality of life enjoyed by residents and visitors. There is access to beautiful beaches, sports fields, neighbourhood parks, walkways and cycleways, and historic places.
Tauranga City Council wants to make sure they’re managing their reserves the way the community wants them to.
They have written a draft Tauranga Reserves Management Plan and are seeking feedback.
This plan will guide Council’s decision-making on more than 290 parks and reserves in the city. It considers over 50 specific topics - enabling a range of activities, guiding maintenance and development, protecting important sites and features, and explaining how they’ll assess requests and proposals for use. It combines all of the existing reserve management plans into one, and also applies to reserves that don’t currently have a management plan.
The draft Tauranga Reserves Management Plan and a summary document are now available for feedback.
To provide any comments or objections:
