Outcomes Sought?

1.  Manage recreation reserve portion for active sport recreation, by providing hard courts and supporting facilities, and enable the on-going use of buildings for community purposes in the Local Purpose part of the reserve.

2.  Safeguard cultural heritage and landscape values through cautious management of land disturbance and structures.  Assume any land disturbance in the reserve could impact on cultural values and for where this is the case, local iwi and Heritage New Zealand should be notified. 

3.  Retain a native hedge buffer between the courts and residential property.  Monitor macrocarpas for storm damage and potential hazard.

4.  Improve amenity by rationalising and re-landscaping the existing gardens, as funding opportunities arise.  Co-operate with nearby retailers to improve management of litter.
