Technical and community panels have been established to inform our freshwater work.
We collaborate with others to maintain and improve our water resource for future generations. We listen to our communities and consider their values and priorities in our regional plans.
Rural and Environmental Sector Organisation Forum
We have set up this Forum of policy representatives from national organisations to provide early “without prejudice” advice to our Policy and Planning Team as we develop new Regional Policy Statement and Regional Natural Resources Plan policies and rules for freshwater and land management, to improve outcomes for freshwater (directed by the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020). The group will also help us to communicate with their members during public engagement. This Forum replaces the former Regional Water Advisory Panel.
