Hamilton Gardens is a Hamilton City Council-owned asset of considerable importance to the people of Hamilton and the wider region. It is one of the region’s main tourist attraction and visitors to the gardens contribute to our economy.
The gardens are classified as Recreation Reserve, and under the Reserves Act 1977, Council is required to produce a Management Plan for the facility.
Over the last three months, a working group comprising Councillors, Hamilton City Council staff and stakeholder representatives have developed a draft Management Plan which sets out the vision for Hamilton Gardens in coming decades.
The draft Hamilton Gardens Management Plan has been endorsed by Council, and is now at the public consultation phase.
Members of the public and interested organisations are invited to lodge written objections and/or suggestions to the draft plan which can be downloaded below.
Objections and suggestions can be made in two ways:
- By using the online form
- By writing to Peter Sergel, The Director, Hamilton Gardens, Private Bag 3010, Hamilton.
The deadline for submissions was 5pm, Thursday, 6 December.
