The Council is proposing changes to its current Parks and Reserves Bylaw 2009 and we want your feedback.

The proposed changes take into account the evolving behaviours and use of parks and reserves since it was last reviewed in 2009.

We’ve made minor changes to the layout and formatting of the bylaw, and addressed new issues that have arisen since the last review.Prebbleton

The changes also reflect the growth of urban areas, increased number of tourists choosing camping as preferred accommodation, changes to the district’s social fabric, habits, recreation trends and use of technology such as drones.

It’s important to have your say, as open space forms an integral part of the district’s aesthetic, social, ecological, cultural and economic life. We have more than 1200 hectares of parks and reserves in the Selwyn district.

Public consultation on changes to the Parks and Reserves Bylaw 2009 closes on 20 November 2018 at 5pm.
