We have some amazing sportsgrounds in Nelson, and we need to make sure they are looked after so everyone can enjoy them.

To make sure we are looking after these grounds appropriately Council intends to develop and consult in 2020 on a city-wide Sportsground Reserve Management Plan. Prior to this work we need to ensure that all land at Greenmeadows in Stoke is classified in line with how the land is currently being used.

Accordingly, Council is consulting on a proposal to classify part of Greenmeadows Reserve as;

  • Local Purpose (Community Purposes) Reserve (shaded orange on the map)
  • Local Purpose (Road) Reserve (shaded red on the map)

Council has already made the decision to classify the remainder of the Reserve ‘Recreation Reserve’ (shaded green on the map).

Following consultation on this proposal, Council will hear from those that wish to speak to Council on the matter. The Hearings are tentatively scheduled for 10 March 2020. Council will then deliberate on objections and/or submissions before making its decision.

From 11 December 2019 you can object or submit on this proposal using the form below, in writing to Nelson City Council, PO Box 645, Nelson, 7040, or by email to submissions@ncc.govt.nz

Submissions and objections closed 12 February 2020.
