The Roxburgh Community Board is inviting the community to share its thoughts on a draft management plan for the parks and reserves in the Teviot Valley area.
This includes policies and objectives for parks and reserves in Roxburgh, Roxburgh Village, Millers Flat and Lake Onslow.
The Draft Roxburgh Reserve Management Plan opens this week for a two-month long consultation period (closing on Friday 15 November).
The purpose of the plan, which is required under the Reserves Act 1977, is to provide for and ensure the use, enjoyment, maintenance, protection and preservation of the recreational spaces, as well as appropriate development of the reserve areas.
Parks and Recreation Manager Mat Begg says the submission period is "a great opportunity for the community to provide comment on what can happen in Council managed recreation areas in Roxburgh in the future".
A copy of the full 74-page draft plan, information sheets and a submission form are available from Council's Alexandra Office or the Roxburgh Service Centres, as well as on Council's consultation portal. Submissions can also be made online.
