Te Puke and Maketu, this is your chance to help shape the future of recreation and open spaces in your neighbourhood.

Your thoughts and ideas are needed to inform Council’s new reserve management plan for the Te Puke-Maketu ward, which stretches from Te Puke along the coast to Otamarakau. The reserve management plan is Council’s guidebook for recreation and open spaces. It will set out how Council has agreed to develop these spaces over the next 10 years. 

Please select one of the key topics below to tell us what you think (remember to register):

We want to know whether you think there is enough shade in our parks and reserves. If not, where do you think more shade is needed? This could be natural shade (trees) or artificial shade sails.

We also want to know if you think our playgrounds need to be more accessible to people with disabilities. How can we make them more inclusive?

We’ve heard support from the community for development of Spencer Avenue Reserve, Whakaue Sportsground, Jubilee Park and Midway Park. We've listed some options and want to know what you would like to prioritise if funding was made available for this in the future.

Council has undertaken extensive consultation through its Long Term Plan 2021-2031 process on swimming pools and will be developing a new swimming pool in Te Puke in the next five years. We want to know where our community thinks the pool should be located so we can include this information in our review.

It cannot stay on its current site at Te Puke High School. Final site suitability for a swimming pool will be undertaken as a separate process.Council provides cemeteries in the District and some remembrance walls. Through previous consultation we’ve heard that alternative memorial arrangements should be considered.

We want to know where you think the most appropriate sites are and what you would like made available to remember our loved ones. Please note, this has to be on existing Council reserves.We want feedback on whether the names of our parks and reserves accurately reflect the place they’re in and the history of that place.

Several reserves in the ward have multiple names – we want to know if this is an issue and whether duplicate names need to be reviewed. An example of this is Jubilee Park/Jamieson Oval and Donovan/Pioneer Park, Te Puke.We have previously undertaken consultation about horse riding on beaches and through that process heard concerns about the decreasing number of safe horse riding areas available in the District.

Council decided this would be considered through the review of each ward's reserve management plan. The Te Puke-Maketu ward currently has one designated horse riding area located on the beach at Rogers Road, Pukehina. Access to the TECT Park facility is approximately 30 minutes from Te Puke via Te Matai Road. This review will consider the demand for horse riding areas in the ward to understand whether there is a need for any further investment.

Following support received through previous engagements, a dog exercise area will be developed at Lawrence Oliver Park in Te Puke. We want to know what features dog owners want to see included in the development of this park. For example, ramps/jumps, tunnels, agility equipment, water features or wash-down areas.

We want to hear from you to understand where your favourite places are or if there is anything specific missing from our parks and reserves. What should the priorities be if some funding becomes available?
