Pursuant to Section 24 (2) (b) of the Reserves Act 1977, Auckland Council hereby notifies its intention to change the reserve classification of a portion of the East Tamaki Reserve described in the Schedule below.
East Tamaki Reserve is located at 244R East Tamaki Road in Otara.
Located within the reserve is a portion occupied by a community garden under the operation of the Auckland Teaching Gardens Trust. The Council intends to grant a permanent lease to the Trust authorising the Trust to operate the community garden.
Before the lease can be granted, the Council is required under the Reserves Act to reclassify the portion of the reserve occupied by the community garden.
It is therefore proposed that the reserve classification of the portion of the reserve occupied by the community garden be changed by the Council from a recreation reserve to a local purpose (community gardens) reserve.
Plans showing the reserve are available for public viewing at Reception in the office of the Mangere - Otahuhu Local Board at Shop 17, 98 Bader Drive, Mangere Town Centre.
Any person wishing to object to the proposed change of classification may do so in writing and addressed to the Chief Executive, Auckland Council, Private Bag, 93200, Auckland 1142, Attention Hannah Chapman-Carr, no later than 5 pm 16 May 2019.
