Canterbury Water Kaikoura Zone Committee Meeting

MEDIA ADVISORY

28 November 2012

Canterbury Water Kaikoura Zone Committee Meeting

The Kaikoura Zone Committee will meet at Memorial Hall on Wednesday 28 November for its monthly water management public meeting.

The meeting will begin with an update from the Regional Committee, which looks at region-wide environmental restoration and repair; land use impacts on water quality; as well as water storage, distribution and efficiency options.

The committee will then discuss engaging with youth in water management with the possibility of hosting a youth hui early next year to ensure the perspective of young people is being captured.

The committee will also hear a number of presentations on Environment Canterbury’s proposed Land and Water Regional Plan (LWRP), which provides the framework to facilitate delivery of the community’s aspirations for water management – as set out in the Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS).

The first presentation will provide an overview of the plan and what it means for the Kaikoura Zone. Subsequent presentations will focus on nutrient management, self-audited farm management, and the experience of the Hurunui-Waiau Zone Committee.

The committee will finish the meeting with a discussion on its Immediate Steps biodiversity funding programme. In December last year, the zone committee finalised its priorities for Immediate Steps funding support.

At Wednesday’s meeting the committee will discuss the criteria it has set keeping in mind the recommendations made in its recently completed Zone Implementation Programme (ZIP) for water management.

The Kaikoura ZIP brings together the committee’s recommendations for water management in the zone to achieve the goals and targets set out in CWMS - to enable future generations the greatest social, economic, recreational, cultural benefits from our water resources within a sustainable framework.

In was developed in conjunction with the local community, and having been endorsed by Environment Canterbury and the Kaikoura District Council, it will form the basis for the design and realignment of work programmes.

Gordon Campbell: Legal Fudging Of The GCSB Revelations

As many have noted, the Hager/Snowden revelations of the spying by our security agencies on our Pacific neighbours and allies is a virtual re-run of the pre-election debate. It is a situation where the government (a) stonewalls, (b) baldly asserts that mass surveillance is not occurring despite the Snowden evidence that it is, and (c) claims that the GCSB actions were lawful. Yet as Greens Co-Leader Russel Norman says, this can be true only if the legislation passed last year by the Key government has made the mass surveillance of New Zealanders – and the related handing over of their private data to the NSA – lawful.
