Upper Waitaki Zone Committee meeting

The Upper Waitaki Zone Committee will meet on Friday 16 November, at the Mackenzie Country Inn, Twizel.

The committee will begin its monthly public meeting by offering any members of the public in attendance a chance to have a say.

Next, the committee will hear responses from the Mackenzie and Waitaki district councils on the Zone Implementation Programme (ZIP) for water management.

A key focus for the committee has recently been on looking at how to prioritise, oversee, and provide local leadership on the actions detailed in its Zone Implementation Programme (ZIP) for water management.

The ZIP, developed in conjunction with the community, was endorsed by councils earlier this year as the basis for the design and realignment of council work and planning programmes for freshwater. It contains recommendations and actions that are ready to implement such as biodiversity and land use and water quality actions.

At the meeting the committee will also receive an update from Environment Canterbury on the progress being made implementing the recommendations made in the ZIP.

The committee will finish the meeting with a discussion on mahinga kai values in the zone before going on to look at OVERSEER® - a management tool for modelling nutrient flows.

The Upper Waitaki Zone Committee operates as a joint committee of Environment Canterbury and the Waitaki and Mackenzie District councils. Zone committee meetings are open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
