Takaka Fresh Water and Land Advisory Group

This page provides links to details of the community-led Freshwater and Land Advisory Group (FLAG) operating in Takaka.

The Freshwater and Land Advisory Group (FLAG) for the Takaka Catchments exists to help the Council develop ways to manage fresh water resources and meet the obligations of the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management.

The aim of the FLAG process is to prepare and recommend to Council draft planning provisions including policy and rules in the Tasman Resource Management Plan for Takaka water resources including the Takaka River and its tributaries, ground waters within the limestone and alluvial aquifers, and adjacent coastal streams.

The FLAG is not a decision making group, but a community-led response to water management which makes recommendations to the Council. Any decisions the Council makes are subject to the Resource Management Act Schedule 1 process.
