Play a part in the future development of two popular reserves in Omokoroa.
Western Bay of Plenty District Council is after feedback to help determine the best location for amenities such as car parks, walkways and harbour access points for Lynley Park and Precious Family Reserve.
Concept plans are available online for feedback at haveyoursay.westernbay.govt.nz. For those who want to give feedback in person an open day will be held from 10am – 2pm on Saturday, 21 October at the Omokoroa Settlers Hall.
Lynley Park Subdivision Reserve is used as a local neighbourhood park with connections to the harbour walkway/cycleway. Precious Family Reserve provides walking access to the harbour on the western side of the peninsula.
Council’s Recreation Planner John Rauputu says people should speak up if they want to see changes to how the reserves should be used, or if they want more spent on playgrounds, toilets or other facilities.
Topics Council wants feedback on for Lynley Park Subdivision Reserve include provision for lookouts, carved pou, seating and signage, and future development of Mangawhai Pa, walkways and cycleways.
For Precious Family Reserve, topics include the Mabs Kelly walkway, car parking, wetlands, stormwater, silt disposal and new toilet facilities.
The easiest way for people to find out more, or have their say, is by visiting haveyoursay.westernbay.govt.nz.
Printed copies of the plans are available at all Council’s service centres. Consultation closes at 4pm, 13 November 2017. For more information contact: John Rauputu phone 07 579 6649 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the draft plans.
