The Waimea Inlet Coordination Group is seeking your feedback on a revised draft of the Waimea Inlet Management Strategy and Action Plan.
The Waimea Inlet Management Strategy was created in 2010 to bring together groups committed to the sustainable future of the Waimea Inlet. These groups include Tasman District and Nelson City Councils, Tasman Environmental Trust, Department of Conservation, Fish and Game, Te Tauihu iwi, and other local community organisations, all working under the umbrella of the Waimea Inlet Forum.
In 2015, these groups formed an inter-agency coordination group to commit resources to the Strategy, creating the Waimea Inlet Action Plan in 2019.
Together we have been working away at implementing this plan, thus making significant progress in protecting and restoring the health of the Inlet. This link will take you to a report on the progress that has already been made over the life of the current Management Strategy.
We now propose to combine the Strategy and the Action Plan into one document. The core vision for the Inlet remains the same but a lot of detail will be added.
You can read the proposed revised Management Strategy and Action Plan on the Tasman District Council’s website.
We want to know what you think of the revised document before it is finalised.
Please submit your comments on-line through the Council’s consultation portal at https://www.tasman.govt.nz/my-council/public-consultation/submissions/ before the closing date of 10 March 2023.
Your comments will be treated as a submission and used to help refine the proposed Management Strategy and Action Plan. All comments are public statements and may be quoted in the review process.
If you want more information, you can email Peter Lawless, who is leading the review process, at email@example.com.
