Matakana residents are being urged to have their say over the future use of Jubilee Park, the playing field that currently plays host to the local tennis courts and pony club.
Auckland Council is looking for views on future sporting and recreational use of the area, with options ranging from handing over the reserve for community use, to a space-sharing set-up, or to maintaining the status quo.
“We are seeking consultation from the Matakana community on three options that have been identified as possibilities for the future of Matakana Jubilee Park, as well as any further feedback the public may wish to provide on the future use of the park,” Council sport and recreation adviser, Mathew Walsh, says.
Three special “engagement events” will be held to garner public opinion during April at Matakana Farmers’ Market, Matakana School and Matakana Village Preschool. The dates of these events had yet to be finalised as Mahurangi Matters went to press.
The Jubilee Park proposals will be displayed on the community noticeboard outside Matakana Four Square throughout April, and full details can also be found at shapeauckland.co.nz
The deadline for submissions is Sunday, May 6.
