A decision on the revocation of the reserve status over the Omaha Reserve will be known soon. The proposal was put forward by Auckland Council to enable it to retain and continue to manage the property.
Omaha Reserve, at the corner of Omaha Drive and North West Anchorage, is occupied by three recreational activities (bowling, golf and tennis clubs), one local purpose activity (community centre) and two commercial activities (commercial café and golf pro-shop).
Currently, the recreational and commercial uses of the land do not comply with the Reserves Act. If DOC agrees to the revocation, the property will remain owned and administered by Council under the Local Government Act 2002. Council is expecting the decision this week.
