Water Wairarapa


Discussions with all parts of the community are vital to hear perspectives and ideas about water uses and values and to ensure any scheme is viable and environmentally sustainable.

The Stakeholder Advisory Group was formed in December 2011 as a forum for a range of community and interest groups to provide input into the project.

Independently chaired, the group has 18 member organisations representing iwi, environmental, farming, health, recreational, local government and business interests.

The group meets regularly to discuss project progress, share findings and gain input into upcoming stages. You can read copies of the group’s meeting notes here.
