In 2017, we began this journey by asking how you used your local parks and how you would like to use them in the future.

We have used your feedback to create the draft Hibiscus and Bays Local Parks Management Plan.

Now the local Hibiscus and Bays Local Board would like your feedback on this draft plan.

About the draft plan

The draft plan covers 287 parks and more than 600 hectares of land in the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area. It extends from Waiwera in the north to Campbell’s Bay in the south.

The draft plan includes all parks and reserves owned and managed by Auckland Council in the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area.

What the plan doesn’t cover

The draft plan doesn’t include:

  • Mairangi Bay Beach Reserve
  • Long Bay Regional Park
  • Shakespear Regional Park.

How the plan is organised

The plan is made up of two volumes.

Volume 1 contains information and policies that are relevant to all parks.

Volume 2 has specific information and management intentions for each local park.

What happens next

The consultation will be followed by hearings, at which any submitter can speak to their submission in person.

The final plan will be amended following the hearings and is likely to be adopted in November 2020.

How to have your say

Give feedback via our interactive mapping tool which makes giving feedback on your local parks easy.

If you do not want to use the interactive mapping tool, you can still give feedback through our online feedback form

Feedback must be received in writing by 4 September 2020.

We are following the process set out in section 41 of the Reserves Act 1977 to prepare the local parks management plan. This process requires us to consult with the public twice: before we draft the plan; and when we have a draft plan to be reviewed.
