Places and Spaces for a Thriving Future

We want to talk about making Central Hawke’s Bay an even more amazing place to live, work, play and learn in the future. Over the past few years our focus has been on getting our water and transport infrastructure basics right. Now we are ready to talk about the future of all those other things that enrich our lives and help to build strong communities.

Places and Spaces Logo

Great places to live have a wide range of facilities, spaces, and activities that support communities to connect and thrive. Our district is growing, so we need to future proof our places and spaces to ensure they are fit for purpose. Central Hawke’s Bay is already a great place to live - let’s continue to build on that!

Our Parks, Reserves and Sportsgrounds

There are over 228ha of parks, reserves and sports facilities in Central Hawke's Bay. We've been listening as Mana whenua, clubs, groups and organisations have told us how they use those spaces now and how they'd like to use them in future.

We've now turned these ideas and feedback into plans, including, for the first time, a Reserves Management Plan for Central Hawke’s Bay as required by the Reserves Act 1977. These full plans can be viewed via the links below.

Untitled 300 180px 2We are kicking off a project to create a vision for the future development of Russell Park - Waipukurau's premier active reserve. Find out more about the 'Russell Park Masterplan' and how you can be involved.
