The Freshwater Plan

The National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020 (NPS-FM 2020) directs us to prepare a plan for maintaining or improving the state of freshwater in the region – the “Freshwater Plan”.

To help explain what the freshwater plan is all about and how you can get involved , we’ve developed some summary information. Take a look around – if you can’t find what you’re looking for, get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to help sort it out.


Tell us what you think...

We would really like your feedback on what freshwater values you think are important, what affects these values and what you’d like to see improve. You can tell us what you think by dropping a pin on a map and taking a brief survey here.

Survey closes end of February 2023.

See our Freshwater StoryMap below for more background information on the NPS-FM 2020 and freshwater in Te Taitokerau. Our freshwater values survey is also available there.
