Managing our reserves
Council wants to develop a General Reserves Policy and prepare a specific Reserve Management Plan for Knottingley Park & Arboretum.
Knottingley Park is used for a variety of activities and we want to make sure the management plan we develop recognises existing uses but also includes any future activities. At the heart of the plan will be a commitment to reflect, as best as possible, the wishes of our community.
What will the Reserve Management Plan contain?
The management plan will contain specific guidelines to protect social, cultural and recreational features of Knottingley Park, ensuring its preservation and ability to provide enjoyment to the community.
Gauging public feedback
We ran a survey to seek feedback and ideas on what could be included in both the Policy and the Reserves Management Plan for Knottingley Park & Arboretum. Those ideas will now be considered as Council develops the documents.
What comes next?
The draft policy and draft management plan will then be issued for further public feedback before the final policy and plan are formally adopted.
Once the plan has been adopted for Knottingley Park and Arboretum, further reserve management plans will be developed.
