We are developing two management plans for local parks and reserves on Waiheke. One will cover Rangihoua Onetangi Sports Park, and the other will cover all the other parks on Waiheke that we own or manage.
You can read more about the proposed management plan, and how you can have your say on the future of these parks on the Waiheke Local Parks Management Planning consultation page.
What we want you to have your say on
As a part of developing the plans, the reserves must be classified under the Reserves Act 1977 (RA). These classifications will determine the main purpose of the park, and how it will be managed in the future.
For reserves held under sections 14(1), 16(1) and 24(2) of the RA, public notification of the proposed classifications is required. We would like to invite your submissions and any objections on these proposed reserve classifications and reclassifications.
The reserves under section 16(2A) do not need to be publicly notified. However, we would still like to hear your feedback before we make any decisions about classifying these reserves.
When you can have your say
You can have your say from 31 January to 8 March 2019.
Any hearings on the proposed classifications are likely to take place in the first half of 2019. A hearings report will be made available on this page before that.
