Air, waterways, coasts, soils and biodiversity – these natural resources are vital for our wellbeing and our way of life. How do you think they should be used, developed and protected?

Greater Wellington is holding a series of community workshops around these questions. They want to hear your views. This is the first stage of the development of a new integrated regional plan for managing the region’s natural resources.

Natural resource management affects, among other things, food gathering, recreation, land clearance and development, environmental tourism, farming, ecology, fishing and hunting, drainage, water use, adventure sports, and cultural heritage.

Community workshops are being convened all over the region. There will be one in Thorndon on 17 August.
