“What would you like to see at Ruakaka Beach Holiday Park?”

The Ruakaka Reserve Board which manages the Ruakaka Reserve is developing a Management Plan which will set out how the Holiday Park will be managed for the next 10 years. 

We need your help to understand what the community values in this local reserve and how you would like to use and enjoy it in the future so that we can consider your views as we draft the plan.

The Ruakaka Reserve currently features – camping sites, playground, tennis court, barbeque area, jetty, toilet, shower and kitchen blocks, basic cabins and the Clapham Hall.

The Management Plan will consider:

  • The use and purpose of the land
  • Protecting the natural environment
  • Improvements to serve the needs and enjoyment of the campers and the wider community

You can see the “Camp Map” HERE for a detailed layout of this area

Throughout the process, we will be working closely with:

  • the community
  • Local iwi
  • Campers
  • Volunteer groups
  • Department of Conservation
  • Local Council Departments

This just the first opportunity for you to have your say.  Once we have drafted the plan there will be a more formal opportunity for you to make a submission.

When can you have your say?

You can have your say from 15 August to 15 September 2019.

How can you give us your ideas?

Submission forms are available:

  • Or at our office – 21 Ruakaka Beach Road, Ruakaka

We will identify the key themes from your comments, ideas and suggestions which will help gain an insight into the community views and opinions, these will be used to inform the development of the Management Plan.  All feedback provided will be considered, however, this does not mean that every suggestion can be taken on board and adopted as proposed.
