Draft Parks and Open Space Strategy

Submissions are now open on a draft Parks and Open Space Strategy.

Why do we need a new Parks and Open Space Strategy? 

To ensure our existing open space and new reserves are meeting the needs of the community and are protected for future generations.

Our Parks Strategy was last reviewed in 2002. The Queenstown Lakes District is fortunate to have a variety of open space and reserve areas that play a vital role in making this area a great place to work and play. Increased population and visitor numbers can put pressure on the use of the land as more people want to use and enjoy these areas. That's why development and protection of our parks and reserves, and improvements to the quality of them is important.

Read the draft Strategy and have your say!
