Background

Through the Long Term Plan 2015-2025, a budget of $1 million was allocated from the Foxton Beach Freeholding Account over the next ten years to spend on the reserves at Foxton Beach. A decision was made to produce an investment plan to help ensure this budget is used in the most effective way possible.

The Investment Plan has been produced via information and ideas provided by the Foxton Beach Community. An initial consultation period in 2016 saw a range of Foxton Beach residents and groups contribute ideas to help shape the Proposed Foxton Beach Reserves Investment Plan, which was then taken back out to the community for feedback from late 2016 to the start of February 2017.

Horowhenua District Council then adopted the Foxton Beach Reserves Investment Plan on 15 March 2017. The final Investment Plan lists the actions resulting from consultation. Please note that because of the number and scale of ideas collected and having only a certain amount of funding available, not all of the actions will be completed under this Plan.
