Bureta Parkland

In April 2018 Mike Greer Homes received consent to build townhouses on, 56 lots, at 80 Ngatai Road, the space between the back of Countdown and Chapel Street Reserve, Bureta Park, Tauranga. It is unclear when work will begin.

On Friday 1 June 2018 a fence was erected. For some people this fence was the first indication that this ‘parkland’ with 27 mature 4 storey trees (including Pohutakawa, Ash, Elm, Oak, Evergreen Magnolia, Liquid Amber, Silk) was not PUBLIC RESERVE as previously thought.

We are two mothers, Emily Mowbray and Muriel Spenceley, who would like to collect the community's views on this matter.

We appreciate you completing this survey as soon as possible, as we are going to the media with the resulting data, hoping the community's feedback, will help serve in protecting the TREES.

It is unclear when work is due to begin on the site, so time is of the essence.
