Bothamley Park Trunk Sewer Upgrade Reserves Act Approvals

Kāinga Ora’s Eastern Porirua Regeneration Project required a major upgrade to the trunk sewer through Bothamley Park. The park is comprised of multiple parcels, is designated as a Landscape Protection Area and Significant Natural Area, and has Kenepuru Stream flowing through it to Te Awarua-o-Porirua (Porirua Harbour).

Xyst provided advice on the Reserves Act 1977 and processed the temporary reserve closure and easement applications. This included working with Council’s Parks team and the applicant, assessing the applications and managing iwi engagement and the public notification process, preparing and presenting reports to Council and preparing the final approvals. Xyst also facilitated the necessary DoC approval associated with the adjoining marginal strip.
