The commissioners were: Dame Margaret Bazley (Chair), Hon. David Caygill (Deputy Chair), David Bedford, Elizabeth Cunningham, Tom Lambie, Professor Peter Skelton, and Rex Williams.
The government selected experienced and capable commissioners with excellent public service, governance, judicial and business skills. This model has ensured a balance of agricultural, environmental and electricity expertise to match the challenges facing Environment Canterbury.
Completing a resource management plan for water in Canterbury was made an urgent priority in the terms of reference for the Commissioners.
The commissioners were also required to improve relations with Canterbury's 10 territorial councils, to build on the work of the Canterbury Water Management Strategy and to meet all the statutory obligations of the Resource Management and Local Government Acts to consult with the Canterbury community. These measures were implemented to improve the performance of Environment Canterbury.
