The Waimakariri Zone Committee meets on the first Monday of each month.
Claire McKay - Chair of the Waimakariri Zone Committee
During April and May the Waimakariri Zone Committee held a series of ten community meetings around the zone in the lead up to the development of the Waimakariri sub regional plan.
The sub regional process will feed into the Land and Water Regional Plan (LWRP) - Environment Canterbury’s planning framework on how land and water are to be managed in the region.
While the more formal sub regional plan consultation isn’t scheduled to commence until mid 2016 the committee felt it was important that we started talking with our community now.
We wanted to confirm that the eight priority outcomes we have previously identified are still relevant.
