Reserve Management Plan Review Process

Manawatu District Council has over 70 reserves that it owns or manages. The Reserves Act 1977 requires Council to have Reserve Management Plans in place, to ensure a framework exists for decisions on the use, management, and development of reserves.

A comprehensive review of the Districts Reserve Management Plans is now underway. The review starts by inviting written suggestions. All suggestions will be considered for inclusion in the Draft Reserve Management Plan, which will be available for public submission before being finalised.
