Here you will find information on the plans, policies and rules by which Greater Wellington manages our five regional parks and two future water collection areas.

Parangarahu Lakes Co-Management Plan

Greater Wellington Regional Council and Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust jointly manage the Parangarahu Lakes Area through a ‘Roopu Tiaki’ or guardianship group set up in 2012. The Roopu Tiaki has prepared a Co-Management Plan for the Parangarahu Lakes Area.

GWRC prepared an amendment to the Parks Network Plan to include the aspects of the Co-Management Plan that apply to the Recreation Reserve land GWRC manages at the Lakes.

The Co-Management Plan and amendment were adopted by GWRC and PNBST in February 2015. 

Council also approved amendments to the Parks Network Plan (to encompass Baring Head in East Harbour Regional Park in 2012), and to update the map showing permitted tracks for motorised recreation vehicles in the Akatarawa Forest and to make policy changes for camping (in 2016).
