Play a part in the future development of two popular reserves in
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.
