Tell Us How to Look After Your Green Treasure

20 September 2018

Please note: Public feedback on our Green Spaces Management Plan closed on 31 October.

We all love our walkways, parks, streams and rivers, and NPDC wants to know where your favourite green space is and how we should be planning for its future.

NPDC already has in place management plans for our big green spaces such as Pukekura Park and Lake Mangamahoe but now we need a management plan for 93 of our other green treasures, totalling about 300 hectares.

“Walkways, parks, streams and rivers are where we make memories with our families and friends, and they’re a vital part of Building a Lifestyle Capital,” says New Plymouth District Mayor Neil Holdom. “Our parks team do a great job looking after them and now we want you to tell us which are your favourites and share your ideas about their ongoing management.”

NPDC manages some 1,600 hectares of parks and about 82 kilometres of walkways across our district with a dedicated team of specialist arborists and horticulturists. 

People who fill in the online survey will go in the draw to win a $200 voucher from Palmers Garden Centre.
