The public will get a say on whether small sections of
Wanaka's Pembroke Park should be converted into angle
parking, after the Queenstown Lakes District Council approved
notification of proposed amendments to the park's management
plan this week.
The decision ratified a recommendation from the Wanaka
Community Board meeting on January 22 that the council notify
the public of its intention to amend the Pembroke Park
reserve management plan and call for submissions.
The amendments would allow helicopter landings in the park,
additional parking along its Brownston St verge and removal
of a provision for developing a further 60 car parks and six
bus parks at the McDougall St end of the park.
Cr Leigh Overton and board members Jude Battson and Dick Kane
were appointed to hear public submissions.
Consultation on the proposal closes on May 10.
