Draft Reserve Management Plan - Lake Hayes Estate, Shotover Country & Bridesdale

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Feedback is now closed on the draft Reserve Management Plan (RMP) for Lake Hayes Estate, Shotover Country and Bridesdale (LHESCB) residential areas.

We're planning a combined Reserve Management Plan (RMP) for the recreation reserves in the Lake Hayes Estate, Shotover Country and Bridesdale (LHESCB) residential areas. This document will be a guide for the types of activities and facilities that are desired (and not desired) within these reserves, enabling the improvement of these spaces to provide a more diverse range of recreation opportunities for a wide range of ages.

Reserves in the draft RMP include:

  • McBride Park - Lake Hayes Estate
  • Nerin Square - Lake Hayes Estate
  • Walnut Grove Reserve - Lake Hayes Estate
  • Widgeon Place - Lake Hayes Estate
  • Richmond Park - Shotover Country
  • Shotover Wetlands - Shotover Country

We want to know what you want to see enhanced in these spaces and how you want them to be used. It's an opportunity to reflect on current facilities and open space uses, and envisage how the spaces may be used similarly or differently in the future.

Please note that 516 Ladies Mile is not included in this RMP. This land is subject to the Ladies Mile Master Planning which is underway concurrently.

    Are there any plans to provide Bins on the reserves for rubbish and or Dog Bags? I see free dog bags in the area on some roads but very few bins to put the dog waste in and I have seen alot of dog waste not picked up or the bags left on the ground at the rerserves. As a responsible dog owner We take bags and bring the waste home to our house but bins at the reserevs may encourage all to do the right thing.

    While our general approach to reserves is that the user takes their rubbish home with them (as it sounds like you are doing), this is an opportunity for members of the community to shape how these recreation reserves are used both now, and in the future. Our plans are yours to help guide, so, if you'd like to see more bins, or doggy bag dispensers, we'd welcome you to suggest that in a feedback form here: https://letstalk.qldc.govt.nz/draft-rmp-lhescb/survey_tools/draft-rmp-lhescb

    Are there any plans to put a tennis Club on one of the reserves in the Area, as the only 2 options at the moment are in the gardens right in Queenstown or a small club at Arrowtown. If not, could we have more of the multi sport facitilties (tennis court/football/basketball etc.) like the one in McBride Park.

    Leading to a draft being made, the Reserve Management Plan is a blank canvas and open for community members to suggest more sports facilities if that's what you'd like to see. Council has no set plans for these recreation reserves, so it's your feedback that will help shape future options. Set your imagination free, tell us what you want to see enhanced in these spaces, and leave a pin (or several) on the Leave Your Mark section to visual where and what you want to see: https://letstalk.qldc.govt.nz/draft-rmp-lhescb/maps/leave-your-mark

    What happens once I've submitted feedback?

    Community input will be used to create a draft RMP of the area. Following this, QLDC will notify the draft and take further submissions on the document, before finalising the RMP.
