Kua kitea e Te Kaunihera o ngā Roto o Rotorua te hiahia kia whakawhanakehia tētehi Mahere Tākaro, ngā Mahi a te Rēhia, ngā Rautaki Hākinakina me ngā Papa Rēhia. Ko te tikanga o te rautaki me te mahere he rato kupu tohutohu kounga nui mō te anamata o ngā hiahia o te hapori o Rotorua i te tākaro, ngā mahi a te rēhia, hākinakina me ngā papa rēhia, tae ana ki ngā whakaarotau o ngā whakaritenga hōtaka, rawa hoki. Ka whakamahia ia ki te tohu i ā te Kaunihera Whakamaheretanga Karioi. E mahi ngātahi ana te Kaunihera ki a Te Arawa, kua tono hoki mātau i a Recreation, Sport & Leisure Consultancy (RSL) / Otium Planning Group ki te kōkiri i te rautaki me te mahere mā mātau.

Rotorua Lakes Council has identified the need to develop a Play, Active Recreation and Sport Strategy and an Open Space (Parks) Plan. The purpose of the strategy and plan is to provide high-level guidance for the future needs of the Rotorua community in play, active recreation, sport and open space (parks), including priorities for programme and facility provision. It will be used to inform Council’s Long Term Planning. The Council is working with Te Arawa and we have engaged Recreation, Sport & Leisure Consultancy (RSL) / Otium Planning Group to undertake the strategy and plan on our behalf.

Both the strategy for play, active recreation and sport and the plan for open spaces (parks) are community documents designed to improve opportunities for our people to participate in play, active recreation and sport. Your support in the development of these community documents is necessary to ensure they reflect the needs of our people.
