Canterbury style zone committee comes to the Wairarapa

Canterbury style zone committee comes to the Wairarapa

Federated Farmers’ Wairarapa welcomes the formation of the Ruamahanga Whaitua Committee and its commitment to balance environmental and economic values for the Ruamahanga Catchment.

“The Whaitua committee makeup is well balanced to deliver sustainable and workable rules for the Catchment and the Wairarapa,” says Federated Farmers’ Wairarapa provincial president Jamie Falloon.

“We thank the people involved for putting their names forward for what will be a pretty busy two year period.

“It will be a challenging process and will require all parties to be fully involved in discussions to find outcomes that are what the community wants.

”The first step will be getting a clear picture of water quality in the catchment, so that we know where we sit and then as a community decide on what improvements are required over what time.

“There will be decisions made that don’t suit certain interests but the collaborative process will find a consensus that all interests have to work with to help water quality in the Ruamahanga Catchment,” Mr Falloon said.
