We're improving Coronation Reserve over the next few years to make it more enjoyable for everyone.
As part of our Annual Plan for 2022/23, Councillors approved additional funding for the continued development of the reserve. This work is outlined in an approved landscape plan. [PDF, 12 MB]
When the plan was approved in 2008, some funding was set aside to form the current central walking track between Vista Place to the bottom of Major Aitken Drive, scrub clearance around the boundaries, and some planting.
Unfortunately following the Canterbury earthquakes, the project was placed on hold with only minor works being undertaken since then.
Thanks to efforts from local residents, the Council has provided additional funding through the Annual Plan review to continue with improvement work to see the planned development fully completed.
Although the original timeframes shown on the plan [PDF, 12 MB] are out of date, the actual staging of works is still relevant.
The Council now has a programme in place to continue with this development. The timeframes and detail below is shown at a high level:
|Financial year: 1 July to 30 June||Budget|
Please note that the funding shown past 2024 is subject to approval as part of the Long Term Plan review. Public submissions will be able to be made at that review time to either support or not support this project's future funding.
