Your views sought on reserve development

North Shore City media release

Your views sought on reserve development January 30, 2008

There’s two months to have your say on how Three Streams, Kauri Grove and Serenity Reserve in Albany will be maintained in the future.

Over three hundred species have been identified at the three reserves, and some 4000 individual trees, including 600 Kauri, have been planted since 1969.

North Shore City parks officer, Alexis Manirakiza, says this is a young forest with a great future where Kauri, the original prevalent species may eventually dominate again.

North Shore City Council gained responsibility for the land in 2005 from the Elizabeth II Trust and now manages the site as an integrated reserve with two other neighbouring reserves (Kauri Grove and Serenity Reserve).

The 11.5 hectare site is comprised of seven titles, the largest lot, Kauri Grove Reserve is 6.953 hectares.

“It is wonderful to have a reserve in our city which we can utilize to study ecological relationships, growth rates and management techniques.

“Our vision for these reserves ensures they provide an ecological and scenic asset to the city with restricted pedestrian access on formed tracks, while also being available for education purposes,” says Mr Manirakiza.

The management plan for these reserves was endorsed by North Shore City Council in 2006 and the Albany Community Board has endorsed the release of the Draft Development Plan.

Submission forms will be available from the Albany Village Library or for more details, or to view the draft plan, and make an online submission please visit North Shore City Council’s website, www.northshorecity.govt.nz.
