Surrey Park classification

Invercargill City Council, as the administering body of Surrey Park, proposes that the acquired areas taken under section 40 of the Public Works Act, more particularly identified as 0.6890ha, being section 3 SO 480427 and Lot 2 DP 5294 (ex Surrey Park School site), be designated as Recreation Reserve.

When Council acquired this land the intentions were at the time to amalgamate it with existing reserve land and manage it all under the same status which is recreation reserve.

You are invited to lodge written submissions on the proposal.

For more information please contact the Parks Office, Queens Park by email or phone 03 219 9070.
