1. Protect Bothamley Park as the "Green Heart" of Porirua, and its 2nd largest reserve.
2. Protect key 'green' ecological connections stretching from Belmont Regional Park and the Hutt Valley through to Porirua Harbour. Manage the reserve as a 'green' buffer between catchments draining to the Porirua Harbour and Pauatahanui Inlet, from urban land uses in eastern Porirua and the Aotea block.
3. Protect natural bush values to promote healthy ecological functioning, through plant pest control efforts. Enable the natural regeneration of other bush vegetation in the Park, with a view to realising the potential for regionally significant ecological values.
4. Protect the riparian values to promote healthy water and streamside functioning of Kenepuru Stream and its tributaries, including through riverbank stabilisation, pest control and planting restoration. Undertake additional riparian planting as opportunities arise, to improve in-stream habitat. Manage drainage to ensure that there is no contamination of the waterway.
5. Monitor woodland trees on the true left of Keneperu Stream for health and safety, and remove as necessary. Replant for visual amenity, shade and shelter.
6. Encourage community involvement and education through ecological restoration projects.
7. Protect high landscape values through cautious management of land disturbance and structures.
8. Continue to encourage high levels of casual recreation and landscape appreciation, by providing easy access walking and cycling opportunities to and along the Old Road spine, amenity open spaces and facilities, in accordance with the Bothamley Park Development Plan.
9. Provide directional signage to identify tracks and access points and informative signage to display information about the restrictions in the Reserve.
10. Allow organised events such as the Grand Traverse.
11. Protect and enhance practical recreation linkages between Ranui, Cannons Creek, Waitangirua, Ascot Park, Whitby and Aotea communities. Protect walking/cycling commuter connections to Porirua city.
12. Retain the Dog Exercise Area.
13. Prohibit Motorcycles from the Reserve.
14. Consider as potentially appropriate the installation of a new stormwater pipe to Keneperu Stream from Hereford Street to reduce the volume and velocity of stormwater entering the stream from the existing stormwater outlet from York Place.
15. Allow Greater Wellington Regional Council to access and maintain the Kenepuru Stream for the purposes of flood hazard management.
