I am a member of the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee tasked with making recommendations to Greater Wellington Regional Council on the future of our coastal and freshwater quality, and how our water is used. Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.
We want to work with you to make our Whaitua more sustainable and healthy so that the future generations can continue to enjoy the many beautiful parks, rivers, streams and beaches of this catchment.

To leave behind a strong legacy, we need to protect the health and mauri of our waterways, which are under pressure due to population and land development. We need to fix our waste and stormwater infrastructure. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say down below.
