Central Otago Scheme meeting - 14 February

Venue: the Cellar Door, 143 Centennial Ave, Alexandra


1.    Feedback on questions sent to Land & Water Forum by the new government

Discussion session – The Hon David Parker and Hon Damien O'Connor have asked if the Forum can provide the Government with advice by the end of May on a number of discrete areas, but specifically:

•    More detailed consideration on the Government's priority of avoiding further degradation of water quality, in particular on interim limits and other measures to 'hold the line';    whether there is a consensus view on how best to allocate nutrient and sediment loads by catchment while recognising fairness between existing capital investment and underdeveloped land, and meeting bottom lines, and how this can be implemented without having the same underlying debate in each region.

Further information to be circulated post the Land & Water Forum meeting on the 9th February.
