The future use of Huia Street Reserve

We’re proposing some changes for how Huia Street Reserve, on the corner of Park Road and Fitzherbert Avenue, might be used in the future. Council’s preferred option is to enable the sale or development of the reserve for housing.

To achieve this, we'll need to amend the Palmerston North Reserves Act 1992 and/or the Palmerston North Reserve Empowering Act 1996, and the District Plan.

Submissions on this proposal closed at 4pm on Monday 10 February 2020. We asked you what you thought about our preferred option and the alternatives outlined in the statement of proposal.

We'll be considering your feedback before making a formal decision on the future use of Huia Street Reserve.

We'll also be holding a hearing for those people who want to talk to their submissions.

Hearings date set for 12 August

Council's Planning & Strategy Committee meeting will hear submissions at 9am on Wednesday 12 August 2020.
