The recreation reserve was vested in Council in 1976 as the result of a subdivision. It is a rear section, located behind 45 Fisher Place and is enclosed by housing, vacant land and railway. It has only one legal access off Fisher Place.

In 2015, Council made a resolution to gift ownership of the then Council housing units and the land (Fisher Place Reserve) to Carter Society Incorporated. Council is now starting the process to revoke the reserve status with aim of completing the transfer of ownership.

The Department of Conservation (“DOC”) must give its approval to the revocation of the reserve status. A Council resolution and evidence of consultation are required to be submitted to DOC in order to process the revocation application.

Submissions on this proposal may be made from Tuesday 22 January – Monday 25 February 2019.

Submissions can be posted to;
