Takaka Fresh Water and Land Advisory Group - FLAG

The Freshwater and Land Advisory Group (FLAG) for the Tākaka Catchments was formed to help us develop ways to manage fresh water resources and meet the obligations of the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management.

FLAG Recommendations for freshwater in Takaka

The FLAG provided their recommendations report to the Council at Onetahua marae on the 24 June 2019. The FLAG have requested their report be read in conjunction with the report by Manawhenua ki Mohua:

FLAG Recommendations Report - July 2019 (pdf, 2.8 MB)

Manawhenua Matauranga Report for the Takaka Catchments - June 2019 (pdf, 3.4 MB)

The Council will be considering the recommendations provided by the group.

What next?

There is further work identified in the report that will be progressed by staff to assist Council’s consideration of the group’s recommendations over the coming months.

The Council confirmed they will wait until they receive the report of the Special Tribunal for the Water Conservation Order and have taken time to consider its implications before publicly notifying a Tākaka freshwater plan change.
