Council has approved the drafting of a final version of a Reserve Management Plan for reserves in Lawrence-Tuapeka.
Councillors considered nearly 100 submissions on the draft plan, and approved it moving to the final stage, with amendments.
They voted to retain motocross activity (a focus of many submitters) on the Lawrence Gymkhana Club grounds. Submissions on this topic were wide ranging. There were those who felt that it should not be allowed at all, those who thought that it should be permitted but with restrictions, and those whose view was that it should continue unrestricted.
Councillors also agreed that separate work will be undertaken to manage lease arrangements and management plans for activities.
The final version of the Lawrence-Tuapeka Reserve Mangement Plan will be available from our website at: https://www.cluthadc.govt.nz/council/plans-and-strategies/plans
