This consultation closed on 31 January 2017. Thank you for having your say.
We are currently working on a draft policy document that will accompany the concept plan to be formally incorporated as a Special Management Zone within the Regional Parks Management Plan 2010.
This will be reported to the Environment and Community Committee, where we will seek their approval to publicly notify the draft policy document. The draft document will then be open for two months for further submissions.
We will notify you again once the draft document is available.
We would like to adopt the name ‘Taitomo’ for this area. Mana whenua, Te Kawerau a Maki, have agreed that this is an appropriate name for the area.
Thank you for your interest in this important topic and we will continue to keep you informed on the progress of this project.
