Waimea Inlet Management Strategy

This strategy brings together the communities of Tasman and Nelson and the many groups who have an interest in, and a commitment to, the Waimea Inlet and its sustainable future. It is an inter-agency strategy that includes the Tasman and Nelson councils, statutory agencies, non-statutory groups and organisations, businesses and residents.


The Waimea Inlet Strategy supports the respective Councils’ Long Term Council Community Plans (LTP). As such, it supports the vision and community-sourced outcome statements of those documents, and it guides the Councils’ decision-making across all departments influencing not only statutory resource management but also provision of infrastructure, services and all areas of council involvement.

Area Covered

The Waimea Inlet in this Strategy is the area inside a line connecting the Tasman Bay shoreline of Mapua, Moturoa/Rabbit Island and Tahunanui Beach.
