SELWYN TIMES Tuesday July 5 2016 17 Future Plans for Rolleston Reserve MARKHAM WAY TENNYSON STREET Selwyn District Council has notified a proposal to exchange the reserve status on part of Rolleston Reserve for land at Foster Park. The proposed exchange is a significant step in the development of Rolleston’s town centre, as it will enable part of the reserve to be redeveloped for community and retail use. Why is the reserve exchange proposed? This proposal would see the reserve status on 4.3 hectares of land at Rolleston Reserve (around half the reserve) being transferred to 30 hectares of land at Foster Park. The purpose of the exchange is to enable part of the reserve to be redeveloped for commercial and retail activities and community use, including a library and town square. This change of use has been proposed for some time. It was included in the Rolleston Town Centre Master Plan, adopted in 2014 after extensive public consultation, and in the Land Use Recovery Plan. Recent changes to the District Plan through the Land Use Recovery Plan have confirmed the new zoning for the Rolleston Town Centre, which also identifies the areas where the reserve exchange is proposed. The proposal will enable Foster Park to be held as recreation reserve under the Reserves Act 1977 so it is protected in perpetuity for the public for that purpose. What would happen to Rolleston Reserve following the reserve exchange? The location of the reserve is an ideal site to create a vibrant ‘town centre’ for Rolleston as it is near existing shops and community facilities in central Rolleston. The exchange of part of the reserve (shown in map) provides extra land which can be used to create a town centre for Rolleston, accommodating new shops, businesses, places to eat, a new library and town square, and space for people to relax. The remaining part of the reserve would be developed into an exciting urban park with a range of features that may include a playground, youth park and other elements such as a community pavilion and water feature. Having the park close to shops, the library and town square will attract people to use the park as a community space for relaxation and gathering. The playcentre, scout facility, tennis and netball courts will remain at the park. The detailed design of the new park will be subject to a separate community consultation process so residents will have an opportunity to be part of planning the development. If the reserve exchange is approved, the development of retail and commercial spaces could start from 2018/19 depending on interest from developers and the process to relocate existing sports activities to Foster Park. Development is planned to take place over a number of years. The construction of a new library is planned for 2018/19. The reserve exchange is a statutory process and needs to be approved by the Minister of Conservation. What would happen to Foster Park following the reserve exchange? The proposal would see the reserve status removed from 4.3 hectares of Rolleston Reserve (around half the reserve) and 30.1 hectares of land at Foster Park formally declared as a reserve. Foster Park will be developed over the next decade to provide a number of sports fields, an indoor courts complex, a major playground, walkways and cycleways and additional parking. Over time many of the sports activities now taking place at Rolleston Reserve will shift to Foster Park. Find out more and make a submission Further details of the exchange and a submission/objection form are available on the Council’s website or copies can be obtained at any of the Council’s service centres. A drop-in session on the proposal will be held on Tuesday 19 July 2016 between 6-8.30pm at Council’s Headquarters, Rolleston. Objections/submissions on the proposal can be made until 5pm on Friday 29 July 2016. They can be made online at, emailed to subject: Rolleston Reserve Exchange; or posted to: Rolleston Reserve Exchange, c/o Asset Manager Open Space & Property, Selwyn District Council, PO Box 90, Rolleston 7643.
