Futureproof Your Land

Protecting the production and value of your land

As a landowner you'll face a range of challenges that, if left unmanaged, could undermine future production and the value of your land. Doing nothing could threaten the quality of your soil, crops, livestock and your lifestyle.

We have created a series of self-assessment toolkits that will provide you with the information to ensure your land remains productive and profitable, while ensuring water quality and biodiversity are protected or improved and erosion is controlled. The toolkits cover erosion proofing, pollution proofing, weather proofing, pest proofing and soil health. The toolkits were originally wriiten for Tauranga landowners but the same principles apply throughout the Bay of Plenty region.

Our Land Management Officers can also work with you to identify the best practices and land use options for your property. We offer funding assistance and practical advice through our Riparian, Biodiversity and Nutrient Management Plan programmes.
