Development of new sports facilities in Wellington, New Zealand's town belt "will be limited under a wide-ranging plan to protect the city's green spaces," according to Amy Jackman of the DOMINION POST. The Draft Town Belt Management Plan "explains the intended methods for the protection, management and development of the 389.68-hectare town belt for the next 10 years." It proposes to "protect a further 85.03ha of reserve land," which is currently managed as town belt land but not protected. The plan "also proposes to limit the development of sports facilities to existing areas," support community gardens, work with the Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust on land reinstatement and clarify what activities are permitted in the town belt (DOMINION POST, 9/24).
