Riparian Land Management Strategy

The purpose of the Riparian Land Management Strategy is to:

  • Identify the priority actions for the Council to enhance water quality and habitat values, and public access through improved riparian management;
  • Outline where further investigation and consultation is required to provide guidance on the management needs of riparian areas in the Tasman District.

This strategy is about improving water quality, aquatic and terrestrial habitat, and public access by getting action on the ground to achieve real benefits. It takes a non-regulatory approach. There are no rules in the strategy. It is a policy document to guide the actions of Council and other parties to implement the relevant objectives, policies, and methods contained in the Proposed Tasman Resource Management Plan (TRMP).
