Our Reserve Management Plans set the direction for management and control of high profile reserve areas in the Whangārei District, which we have responsibility for.
Once a management plan is adopted, it is subject to continuous review to adapt to changing circumstances or increased knowledge about the reserve
A reserve management plan provides a framework for carrying out future management in an integrated way. In addition, there are often concept plans developed for the reserves, which identify particular elements of work, and which are usually prioritised over a number of years.
We work with other agencies, such as the Department of Conservation and iwi, to jointly develop reserve management plans for some areas.
The Kensington Park Reserve Management Plan contains specific provisions for the future management and development of Kensington Park as a recreation reserve.
