Waimea Inlet Management Strategy

This strategy brings together the communities of Tasman and Nelson and the many groups who have an interest in, and a commitment to, the Waimea Inlet and its sustainable future. The Action Plan sits underneath the Strategy.


The Waimea Inlet Strategy supports Tasman and Nelson's Long Term Plans.

It supports the vision and community-sourced outcome statements of those documents, and it guides the Councils’ decision-making across all departments influencing not only statutory resource management but also provision of infrastructure, services and all areas of council involvement.

Area covered

The Waimea Inlet in this strategy is the area inside a line connecting the Tasman Bay shoreline of Mapua, Moturoa/Rabbit Island and Tahunanui Beach.
