Council to answer questions on Significant Natural Areas (SNAs) online

Denise Piper Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Far North District Council will hold a live, online forum on Tuesday, 8 June, to address concerns and questions landowners have about Significant Natural Areas (SNAs) and their role in the draft District Plan.
The forum will be broadcast live on the council’s YouTube channel and will include Māori landowners, and farming and community representatives.
Spokesman Darren Edwards says the aim is to reach as many people as possible before the landowner feedback period on Significant Natural Areas (SNAs) closes on June 11.
“Our goal for the online forum is to give as many people as possible an opportunity to learn more about why council is introducing SNAs, to listen to a range of views and to ask their own questions.”
The two-hour event will air from 1.30pm.
