Policies and Bylaw

Part Two - General Policy


This part provides the policy framework for management of all reserves in Porirua.

The policy in this plan reflects a deliberate desire to integrate different management issues, needs and outcomes for Porirua’s reserves. Each policy in this part is therefore intended to be considered in conjunction with all other relevant policies.

General management outcomes have been formulated with the purpose of each reserve type in mind, to achieve the planned outcomes across the range of reserves. Potential recreation opportunities, development applications, and other activities consistent with those outcomes are then provided for, through the policies of this plan.

The Council follows the processes for general administration of reserves set out and recommended in the "Reserves Act Guide" by Local Government New Zealand and the Department of Conservation (1999, updated June 2004).
