Tony and Dinah Holman launched the concept in 1998, establishing the Chelsea Regional Park Association (CHERPA – action group), and later the Chelsea Park Trust (fund-raising body).

This project is now well advanced with the trust having received a pledge of a total of $10 million from the ASB Charitable Trust, the Auckland Regional Council and central Government. It also has strong support from North Shore City Council which is now committed to providing the other $10 million if the sugar company decides to sell the bushland.

Currently stalled pending outcome of Chelsea Sugar’s Proposed Plan Change 16.
