People are invited to have their say on how parks and reserves are to be managed in the Kaipātiki Local Board area.
The draft Kaipātiki Local Parks Management Plan (LPMP) will provide direction about the management of the 170 parks and almost 540 hectares of land in the Kaipātiki Local Board area, ranging from Northcote Point, Chatswood and Birkenhead in the south to Wairau Valley and Bayview in the North.
The management plan is being prepared according to the Reserves Act 1977 and has a policy rather than an operational focus. It aims to guide day-to-day management in local parks in a way that reflects the values of mana whenua and the community.
Local board chair John Gillon encourages all Kaipātiki residents to have their say on the LPMP.
“If you love our local parks and bush areas, then we really need to hear your views on our Local Park Management Plan. A huge amount of research has gone into ensuring that all of our park information is correct, that park maps and policies are up-to-date, and key management issues have been identified. Now it is time to hear from you whether we have got it right or missed anything.”
The consultation period for the draft Kaipātiki Local Parks Management Plan runs until 17 October 2022.
