Over the past ten years, Rotorua communities have seen a significant growth in populations and in response, we are seeing a greater investment into residential development.

As the district grows, the standard of the open space network in Rotorua will need to reflect the expectations of and provide value to our community.

To achieve this, Council has developed a draft Open Space Level of Service Policy that will provide a framework to help set the standard for future open spaces. The Policy will also help guide assessments of the existing open space network to ensure it meets a determined level of service for the community.

On 29 October 2020 elected members approved the draft Open Space Level of Service Policy go out for public consultation.
