Draft Reserves Management Plan

In May-June 2016 Council publicly notified its intent to review the Ohau River Reserves Management Plan. The Ohau River Reserves include Gladstone Reserve, Kimberley Reserve, Kirkcaldies Reserve, an access way off Muhunoa East Road and Parikawau Reserve.

During this time Council called for members of the community to put forward any comments or suggestions they had on how these reserves might be used, managed and/or developed in the future.

Council has now drafted a new management plan for the Ohau River Reserves and it is now available for the public to view and have their say on.
