Rangitāiki River Forum document delayed

Thursday, 19 February 2015 1:00 p.m.

Te Ara Whanui o Rangitāiki – Pathways of the Rangitāiki will be released on Friday, March 6, 2015.

This contradicts a public notice published in error in the Whakatane Beacon on February 18. The notice stated that the document, which aims to help relevant people identify issues and solutions around the health of the Rangitāiki River, now and in the future, would be released on February 20.

Bay of Plenty Regional Council apologises for the error and for any convenience caused to local iwi, hapū and the community.

The Council hopes to have hard copies of the document available at the Rangitaiki River Festival on March 6. It also hopes to have copies available at council offices and libraries across the Bay of Plenty from March 6.
