Revocation of Reserve

As part of the latest stage of the Parklands residential development, it is proposed that the Napier City Council, pursuant to Section 24(1) of the Reserves Act 1977, revoke the reservation of the recreation reserve situated next to Orotu Drive and as described in the Schedule below (“the Reserve”).  

The reasons for the proposed revocation are:

  1. The Napier City Council originally held an interest in fee simple in the land that is now the Reserve;
  2. The land that is now the Reserve was declared a recreation reserve by the Napier City Council in anticipation of the development of Area 3 of the Parklands residential development – with a separate title issuing for the Reserve on 21 February 2012;
  3. The Reserve has never been developed or used as a recreation reserve and has remained as bare land that is indistinguishable from the fee simple land that surrounds it;
  4. The plan for Area 3 of the Parklands development has been amended so that the proposed residential land now overlaps the Reserve.
  5. Council is currently undertaking a review of the functionality of the remaining area of land at Park Island, with the intention for it to be developed as a sports park, and subsequently declared recreation reserve. Accordingly, the impact of the revocation of the Reserve will be minimal

Any person wishing to object to this proposal must do so in writing stating the grounds for objection, addressed to The Property Manager, Napier City Council, Private Bag 6010, Napier 4142, no later than one month after publication of this notice
