The project involves a number of representatives from local government, central government, tangata whenua, landowners, sector leaders and community representatives. The governance structure includes a Project Steering Group, and a Project Management Group, with the Project Advisory Group currently being formed.
The proposed project Governance Structure and terms of references for the three bodies within the structure have been designed with the pre-feasibility phase in mind and may need to be amended if the project progresses beyond this stage.
