Reserves policies

Volume 1 of the Porirua City Reserves Management Plan: these are our policies setting out how we intend to develop, maintain and protect our reserves.

Reserves include neighbourhood parks and sports grounds, bush and open spaces. 

The plan sets out policies that guide the protection of natural resources, heritage and recreational opportunities for the community - so our reserves can be enjoyed now and in the future.
