Seeking Ideas for Motueka Ward Reserves

The management of Motueka’s many and varied public reserves is due for a refresh – and we need your help to bring it up to date.

Thanks to everyone who's told us what they would like to see in a draft Motueka Ward Reserve Management Plan. Feedback is closed, and results will be collated and reported back to the Council in the near future.

This page remains as an archive of what was consulted on.


Why are we Seeking Feedback?

This summer we want to hear your thoughts and ideas about reserves located within Motueka Ward - places like Decks Reserve, Thorp Bush, Sportspark Motueka, Riwaka Memorial Reserve and Torrent Bay Recreation Reserve.

The way we manage these reserves was last reviewed in 2001, so it’s time we took another look to make sure our management plans are still fit for purpose. These are your public spaces and this is your chance to let us know how you would like to see them managed in future. 

This is the first step in the plan development process. Later in 2017 you'll have an opportunity to view the draft plan, prepare a written submission and speak to your submission at a hearing.

At this early stage we'd like to know 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?
