Community Groups Use of and Access to Parks and Reserves Policy Consultation

On the 20 September 2017, Council adopted the Community Groups Use of and Access to Council Parks and Reserves Policy for consultation.  This is an amendment to the existing policy which adds a set of general terms and conditions for events in urban parks and reserves.

South Wairarapa District Council encourages the use of parks and reserves but has a responsibility to ensure facilities are maintained for future generations and to ensure event bookings meet both the organisers and council’s expectations.  The proposed terms and conditions are intended to provide guidance for event organisers and park users.

Before making any final decision on the Policy, we’d like to have your input. We welcome submissions from any interested person or organisation on any aspect of the proposed policy.
