Community consultation on draft Hagley Park and Botanic Gardens Plans starts 21 August

20 July 2006

Community consultation on three draft plans for Hagley Park and the Christchurch Botanic Gardens will begin on 21 August 2006.

Councillors at today’s Christchurch City Council meeting approved the draft plans for public consultation. The plans and submission forms will be available from 21 August to 16 October at any Council library, service centre and at:

First, a new draft master plan provides a long-term direction for Hagley Park and the Botanic Gardens. It includes 52 projects and indicative costs. Some of these projects have already been approved and others are proposals not identified in any Council work programme.

Second, the draft Christchurch Botanic Gardens Management Plan includes a choice of  three possible locations for a new visitor/information centre, as well as changes to operational and staff facilities. The Council has budgeted $11.1 million for these projects.

Finally, the draft Hagley Park Management Plan addresses issues such as formalisation through leases of sport club facilities and the replacement of aging trees.

The plans reflect views made by the public during a previous round of consultation in 2004. They also align with the community outcomes identified in the Long Term Council Community Plan and the goals and objectives of the Greater Christchurch Urban Development Strategy and the Council’s draft Open Space Strategy.

Public meetings to explain the draft plans and offer people an opportunity to ask questions will be held on Monday 28 August, 12.15-1.45 pm and Thursday 31 August, 7.30-9 pm at the Christchurch Netball Centre in South Hagley Park.
