Waimakariri residents want council to ‘opt-out’ of the Government’s three waters reform

Thousands of Waimakariri residents want the council to opt out of the Government’s three waters reform, with 95 per cent who responded to a survey on the issue saying they wanted services to be managed locally.

Under the proposed reforms, control of drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure would transfer from 67 councils nationwide to four new independent entities.

One entity would cover 21 South Island councils, including all of Canterbury.

Waimakariri mayor Dan Gordon said quality drinking water and better environmental outcomes were essential, and the council did not accept the premise there was only one way to achieve this.

The Waimakariri District Council received more than 3800 submissions and just over 95 per cent stated they wanted the council to “opt-out” of the proposed reform.

Respondents wanted the three waters service “to be managed, built and operated locally by people who understand our area”.

The council will decide on the formal response that will be given to the Government at a meeting on September 28.

When Ben McDrury gets to the top of Mt Thomas he won’t be stopping to take in the panoramic views.

Instead, he will be scaling the mountain as many times as possible in 24 hours to raise money for LandSAR Oxford.

The round trip is four hours, but the 19-year-old carpentry apprentice thinks he will be able to do it more quickly, and hopes to complete the feat at least 10 times.

McDrury will take on the challenge from 6am on October 2, and has been training to ensure he is ready to hit the trails hard.

Donations can be made here.
