Specialist reserve acquisition expertise


Collaborating between vendor and purchaser to improve outcomes for both parties.


If your organisation is considering a land or road acquisition, APL Property Ltd has experts to support your team utilising the Public Works Act 1981. 

APL Property Ltd has recently concluded acquisition of the iconic Mount Iron and Little Mount Iron Recreation Reserves in central Wānaka for the Queenstown Lakes District Council. This included project management of associated fencing and resource consents within a Significant Natural Area and Outstanding Natural Feature zoning.

The Mount Iron and Little Mount Iron Recreation Reserves are popular walking tracks in the Upper Clutha region, with over 180,000 visitors heading up the Mount Iron slopes each year. The acquisition of these reserves will ensure that they are held as public reserve in perpetuity on behalf of the community. 

APL Property Ltd is proud to have played a central role in securing these reserves for the community, working alongside the Council’s Parks and Reserves team.
