Meetings on draft water plan

1:43 pm on 30 April 2012

Canterbury Regional Council holds the first of three public meetings on Monday, to discuss the latest draft of a land and water regional plan.

The plan is a key part of the Canterbury water management strategy, which all 10 territorial authorities in the region endorsed in February 2010.

The draft land and water plan is a combination of objectives covering all of Canterbury, along with policies, rules and provision for specific solutions for individual water catchments.

Monday's meeting in Lincoln is followed by one in Cheviot on Wednesday and in Timaru on Thursday.
