RMLA Waikato: Waikato Regional Council’s Fresh Water Policy Review Project

WRC and the Waikato Branches of NZPI and RMLA welcome you to a presentation on the Regional Council’s Freshwater Policy Review project followed by a tour of the Council’s new building and some refreshments.

This policy review is just one of the requirements under central government’s Essential Freshwater Package, which is about stopping further degradation of New Zealand’s fresh water and improving its quality and ecosystem health.

Over the next two years, WRC will be making changes to their Waikato Regional Policy Statement (RPS) and Waikato Regional Plan to bring them into line with this direction. To do this, WRC will be implementing the National Objectives Framework and seeking input from Tangata Whenua, farmers, industry, rural professionals, and the general public to identify and understand their issues, values, and aspirations for fresh water.

It’s a massive task and the timeframe to do it is tight – come along to hear from WRC staff about how the project is progressing and what work will be happening over the next couple of years.
