Your Council

Lease proposal: Waterloo Park

Council intends to grant a lease under Section 73 (3) of the Reserves Act 1977 for the proposed lease of recreation reserve land to HMBNZ Incorporated – a medieval combat club.

The reserve land over which the lease may be granted is at Waterloo Park (off Waterloo Crescent), Palmerston North, behind the Hokowhitu Scout Hall.

In granting this lease it should be noted that this activity is already operating on the portion of the reserve, however there will be a slight lift in character, intensity and scale. 

Submissions or objections are now being sought from any person or organisation with respect to this proposal. Those making a submission or objection should do so in writing and specify whether or not they wish to appear before and be heard by a Council committee in support of their submission or objection.

Please forward all submissions by Friday 1 December 2017 to Palmerston North City Council, Attention: Governance and Support Team Leader, Private Bag 11034, Palmerston North, or email

For more information about the leases, please contact Bryce Hosking, Property Officer, City Networks, phone: 06 356 8199 extension 7556 or email:
