Seeking ideas for Moutere-Waimea Ward reserves

The first step in reviewing the Moutere-Waimea Ward Reserve Management Plan was to ask for ideas that could be included in a draft plan. Your next opportunity to participate will be in December 2020, when we anticipate publicly notifying a draft plan.

Planning for the future of our parks and reserves

The way we manage parks and reserves located within Moutere-Waimea Ward was last reviewed in 2000, so it’s time we take another look to make sure our management plan is still fit for purpose. These are your public spaces and we want to know how you would like to see them managed in future.

Over the summer of 2019/2020 we asked for your thoughts and ideas about these parks and reserves - places like the Ngatimoti Hall Reserve, Aranui Park, Hoddy Estuary Park, Lord Rutherford Park, Faulkners Bush, esplanade reserves alongside rivers and the Waimea Inlet, along with recreation reserves at Dovedale, Upper Moutere, Kina Beach, McKee (Ruby Bay), Grossi Point, Waimea West, Brightwater, Wakefield, Wai-iti, Lee Valley and other locations. We asked what you love about the reserves, whether they could be improved in any way and what your long-term vision is for the reserves. How would you like them to be 10 to 20 years from now?

This 'seeking ideas' initial round of consultation closed on 31 March 2020. The ideas we received will help us write a first draft of the management plan. There will be another opportunity to comment on the draft itself later in 2020.
