We are seeking feedback from users of Meola Reef Reserve Te Tokaroa, the local community, and residents of the Waitematā Local Board area, on the Draft Meola Reef Reserve Te Tokaroa Development Plan.
The Waitematā Local Board have invested in a programme of development plans for its major reserves. This development plan will be the board’s fifth park development plan.
The purpose of the development plan is to coordinate development of Meola Reef Reserve Te Tokaroa, in the short, medium and long term (10+ years).
Such a long-term plan provides guidance for any changes to the area:
Meola Reef is a lava reef formation that reaches over two kilometres into the Waitematā harbour. A landfill was developed on the reef from 1930 to 1976. After closure of the landfill and capping, the reserve informally developed as a dog walking destination. The Reserve is now known as one of Auckland’s primary off and on-leash dog parks.
Management and mitigation of the closed landfill which underlies the reserve, is outside of the scope of the development plan. However, any development of the park requires any landfill management works to be completed before park development works.
The development plan actions are unfunded at this stage. The development plan will inform funding decisions.
