We are proud to announce that the Community Proposition has been launched. Thank you to everyone that took the time to come along last night to witness the unveiling of this document.
A special thank you to Mayor Tony Lepper, Allan Kane, Kevin Steel, and Peter Bodeker who all spoke about the positive contribution the proposition will provide for the “going forward” of the project.
This document is designed to build a consensus on rural water use in the Manuherikia and Ida Valleys and is the outcome of community-wide consultation undertaken by the Manuherikia Catchment Water Strategy Group. Described as a “touchstone” document, it is a statement of intent for the development of rural water resources in these Valleys.
It is not a legal or statutory document and its purpose is not to compromise, conflict with, diminish, replace or remove the need to comply with other legal requirements, agreements, community plans, applicable Acts, regulations and bylaws. It is intended to be complementary with them.
