Feedback closed 17 February 2017

This page contains details of the proposed works plan for Anarewa Crescent Reserve and Stephens Bay Esplanade Reserve.

The initial feedback has now closed, and thanks to all those who participated - you will receive a letter outlining the process from here.

Feedback will be collated and reported to the Motueka Community Board and the Community Development Committee for final decisions.

What's Planned?

The works plan proposes to construct a 1.5 m wide gravel pathway from the end of Anarewa Crescent which links to Anarewa Point and Tapu Bay Reserve, establish coastal native plants on much of the reserve area and install three seats at selected locations.

The walkway path alignment, views across the reserve to the coast and buffer plantings to maintain privacy will be developed working with individual neighbours to the reserve.

Stage one will be to construct the gravel walkway path and install signage, Stage two will cover the establishment of new plantings and installation of three seat/tables. These plantings will be carried out over three planting seasons.

Why is the Work Needed?

We have received requests from the community for easier and clearer access to these reserve areas. We are required to respond (Reserves Act 1977) as these two reserves were created when the land was subdivided for the purpose of public access and use.

The works plan has been developed after consultation with immediate neighbours.
