Freshwater vision

What do our rivers, streams and lakes mean to us? What is our long-term vision for their future?

We've been working with the community to find out, as part of our reviews of the Freshwater Plan for Taranaki and the Regional Policy Statement for Taranaki. These policy documents set out how freshwater will be managed into the future. 

We've run a survey and had a public workshop to give Taranaki people a chance to air their views, and now we're busy analysing everything we've been told.

We aim to develop a long-term vision for freshwater to set a high-level direction as a basis for future policies and rules. We need a vision that’s ambitious yet achievable (that is, difficult but not impossible) and sets a timeframe (30 years, for example).

Updates will be posted on this page.
