There are changes that Toi Moana Bay of Plenty Regional Council must make to the way we manage the region’s land and water to ensure the health and wellbeing of our freshwater.
We acknowledge there is already a lot of change due to new national regulations, but there is still more to come. Farming and growing, municipal water supplies and industry have significant roles in creating a healthy environment, strong economy and vibrant communities in our region. Where change is needed, we encourage your involvement so that we can work through and identify pragmatic solutions.
Toi Moana are holding three hui in May 2023.These hui will focus on wai māori (freshwater management) and the changes Regional Councils are required to implement to ensure the health and wellbeing of waterways and its sustainability moving forward.
Hui ā-rohe will be held based on the three Māori Constituencies for Toi Moana, and hosted by their respective Māori Councillors.
There will be two separate sessions available for each location from 2pm to 4pm and 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
