Community input is being sought to determine the future of Bannockburn Domain.

The Draft Bannockburn Domain Reserve Management Plan 2022 opens for consultation tomorrow, May 26.

The domain is Bannockburn’s only Council reserve.

Central Otago District Council (CODC) parks officer planning and strategy Dr Nikki Aaron said the plan had not been renewed since 2000.

It’s purpose was to guide council operations and provide provisions for things to happen on the domain in the future.

“A lot has changed in Bannockburn during this time, and we are keen to hear what the community would like to see for the future of the Bannockburn Domain.”

The draft plan had been prepared in consultation with key current domain users and has designated the camping ground as the primary use of the domain.

“We are interested in understanding if this is still how the wider community wants to see the domain used,” Dr Aaron said.

“What do people think about the other features of the domain – the sports ground, bowling club, playground and tennis courts?”

“What do people cherish about the space now and envisage for how it might be used in the future?'”

A drop-in session will be held at the Bannockburn Bowling Club on June 14 from 4-6pm for those interested in the domain to discuss their thoughts with CODC parks and community engagement staff,and elected members.

Submissions close at noon July 25.
