Local Board Chair Julia Parfitt says the local board needs to hear what people value and the activities they like doing in these parks. This information will inform the draft open space management plan.
“It is now time to expand your ideas to encompass all our local parks.
"Your local board makes decisions about local parks from granting leases to sports clubs or community groups to deciding if a commercial lease or private use of public open space is appropriate.
“So it’s important that we consider mana whenua and community views before making these decisions.”
The draft open space management plan is being prepared in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977. Once adopted, it will replace all previous reserve management plans except for the Mairangi Bay Beach Reserves Management Plan which was adopted in 2015 after receiving public feedback.
Also excluded from the plan are Shakespear and Long Bay regional parks and Department of Conservation managed land.
