The Greater Wellington Regional Council Parks Network Plan provides policies and rules for the management of our regional parks and forests.

Your Parks - Have Your Say

We manage eight regional parks under the Parks Network Plan. Our plan was developed in 2011 and we need your help to review it. We want to know what you love about regional parks, what frustrates you and what could be improved. Send us your suggestions.

Take our survey now!

The Parks Network Plan was approved by Council in 2011 has had three amendments since then in 2012, 2014 and 2016. Now it's time to undertake an overall review and develop a new plan.

Once completed and approved by Council, the new PNP will guide management of the regional park network for the next ten years, with future PNP amendments undertaken as the need arises.
