Next steps for Maclean Park Refresh
Over 250 locals have had their say on what they want to see for the future long-term development of Maclean Park in Paraparaumu.
Based on community ideas and stories, the Kāpiti Coast District Council produced three different concepts for future development and asked the community to have their say via survey, email or conversation on what they liked, and what they didn’t think should make the cut.
Parks and Recreation Manager Alison Law is pleased with the response and says this will help shape the future of the park over the next 20 years.
“It’s great to see that so many people engaged with the concepts and put their thoughts and ideas forward. We want to work together to make a plan for this park’s future, and we can only do that if people speak up – thanks to those who did,” says Ms Law.
“Now we’re looking at the feedback and balancing the community’s wants and needs with what’s achievable long-term. From this we’ll pull together one proposed development plan to go into the overall Management Plan,” she says.
“In August we’ll come back to the community to carry out formal consultation on the Management Plan for Maclean Park.”
The Maclean Park development plan wasn’t identified in the FutureKāpiti Long Term Plan 2015-35 which means that budget will need to be allocated to any recommendations that come out of this review process.
