Reid’s Pit Restoration Project
In partnership with Environmental Planning Consultants Xyst, this is a gravel pit restoration project within the Selwyn District. The plan for this site is to develop a multi-faceted reserve, including a series of walking and cycle tracks moving through designated ecological areas and recreational reserve space. Although consents are still being processed for a large portion of the sites intended use, an initial community planting day was organised in August 2018, in partnership with Lincoln University Lecturer Mike Bowie and Te Ara Kakariki coordinator Letitia Lum. It is hoped that site earth works can get underway in mid-2019. Watch this space.
