Victoria Domain Reserve Management Plan Review

In 1995 a Reserve Management Plan was published for the Victoria Domain and related reserves (including Shelley Beach, Memorial Park, Waikawa Recreation Reserve and Endeavour Park). Some 23 years later much has changed in the way people use and value these reserve areas, and these changes are to be considered in developing a new plan. Te Ātiawa o Te Waka-a-Māui Trust and Marlborough District Council are working together to prepare a new plan and would like to hear from you.

You are invited under Section 41 of the Reserves Act 1977 to provide suggestions or feedback on this first stage of the review. The reviewed reserve management plan will provide an overall vision for the Domain and will help guide decisions about how the Council and others will manage and use this area over the next 10 years.

Suggestions and feedback can be made in writing and sent to:

Linda Craighead
Reserves Planner
Marlborough District Council
PO Box 443
Blenheim 7240

Suggestions and feedback can also be emailed to

The closing date for receiving suggestions and feedback is 17 August 2018.

There is no set format for providing your feedback or suggestions. There is a form you can download from this website if you wish. You can also use an online form available on the this website. Information about the review and forms are also available on the Te Ātiawa website. We would like to know:

  • how you use the Victoria Domain reserves
  • what you like or don’t like about the reserves
  • are there particular values important to you?
  • what you think the reserves could or should look like in the future?

From this consultation, a draft plan will be prepared which will then be available for formal submissions later this year.

If you would like to talk to someone about the review, please contact Linda Craighead or Grahame Smail at the Council on 03 520 7400 or Sylvie Heard at Te Ātiawa on 03 573 5170.
