Saxton Field Reserve Management Plan

This Reserve Management Plan sets out the proposed vision, priorities and policies for Saxton Field for the next ten years.

Saxton Field is a significant regional sport and recreation venue managed by the Nelson City Council (NCC) and Tasman District Council (TDC) via the joint Saxton Field Committee. Saxton Field lies within the Nelson City boundary – which runs along Champion Road – and so only NCC bylaws and resource management planning regulations apply to the reserve. This document is, however, jointly approved by both NCC and TDC, as each council is the administering authority under the Reserves Act for the reserves each owns.
