Community consultation round one

 

Previous consultation

In November 2021 and March 2022, we wanted to find out what you know what waterbodies (lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands) are most important to you, what you value most about them and what characteristics are key and received feedback from more than 560 people. Of your feedback, these values were strongest:

  • water quality
  • non-contact recreation such as walking, camping and sightseeing
  • swimming
  • water take/use

Other values included:

  • fishing
  • aquatic species
  • threatened species
  • habitat
  • ecosystems
  • river flow
  • lake level
  • natural character
  • wetlands
  • groundwater

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback or came along to one of the community meetings in consultation round one to tell us what you want for land and water resources in our region.

Manuherekia

Between September 2019 and June 2021, community consultation was undertaken to identify important values and develop objectives and limits for waterways in the Manuherekia.

As part of this consultation community feedback was sought from the community on five Manuherekia Water Management scenarios. Two public meetings were held in Alexandra and Omakau. We received over 1,000 submissions supporting a range of flow options for the river.

The scenarios were developed with input from the Manuherekia Reference Group (MRG). The MRG included representatives from the Manuherekia Catchment Group (MCG), the Department of Conservation, Forest and Bird, Central Otago District Council, Fish and Game, the Central Otago Environmental Society, Southern District Health Board and ORC.

Following consultation, a report outlining a proposed approach was presented to ORC Councillors in August 2021. ORC Councillors requested that more science work be done and this is now underway.
