21 June 2013: Kaikoura Zone committee focuses on Waikōau Lyell Creek
The Kaikoura Zone Committee was launched in mid-2011 to address local water issues and deliver the goals of the Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS).
In February 2012 the committee developed its initial water management priority outcomes and the key pathways to achieve these in the zone.
The priority outcomes feed in to the committee's water management Zone Implementation Programme (ZIP), which was developed in conjunction with the community.
The committee held a series of public meetings in March 2012 to get community feedback on the water management priority outcomes, before releasing its draft ZIP for community feedback in mid-2012.
In November 2012, the committee presented a final ZIP to councils to be endorsed as the basis for the design and realignment of work programmes.
The focus for the committee will now be on working with the community and councils to implement the recommendations made in the ZIP.
Key priorities for the committee in 2013 also include engaging youth in water management, implementing catchment management solutions, and reviewing biodiversity work programmes.
The zone committee has also been working with communtiy members, schools, and organisations to help clean-up Lyell Creek / Waikoau.
