Reserve Management Plan review

​​​​​Council is reviewing the district's Reserve Management Plan.

The reserves include sportsfields, parks, Council managed natural areas and some Ōpōtiki District Council land such as the area encompassing Council's administration building.

The plans are administered under the Reserves Act 1977 and aim to ensure that reserves provide the opportunity for use and enjoyment as well being appropriately maintained, protected and preserved.

The feedback period has now closed. Council will consider all submissions received at a hearings meeting on Monday 3 August 2020 before making final decisions. View a copy of the hearings meeting Schedule of Speakers and copy of all Submissions​ (PDF, 22MB)
