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.
