Te arotake i te Mahere Takutai Moana ā-Rohe o Waikato | Waikato Regional Coastal Plan review


Over the last five years, Waikato Regional Council has been reviewing its Regional Coastal Plan with input from iwi, coastal residents and users, industry, and other key stakeholders.

This feedback, along with iwi environmental management plans and statutory requirements, have been used to develop a draft coastal plan which we anticipate will be notified for public submission in 2023.

For this next phase of the coastal plan review, we would like to test our approach to sustainably manage the coastal marine area with iwi throughout the rohe.

We want input from iwi to ensure the draft coastal plan meets the needs of tangata whenua. The feedback shared with us will help to inform further revisions to the draft coastal plan which will likely affect how recreational and commercial activities are managed.

Please take a moment to share your views on your topic of interest by completing one (or all) of the feedback forms below.

We’re also keen to find out more about the sites that provide for cultural values and practices within the coastal marine area. You can show us where these sites are on our interactive map by dropping a pin on its location and if you want, tell us about the site and what it means to you.

You are able to share your views in our feedback forms and interactive map until XXX.

  • Since the coastal plan was first notified in 1995 there has been limited involvement by tangata whenua in coastal management decision making and in the practical expression of kaitiakitanga.

    To address this, we have incorporated iwi views and mātauranga Māori provisions across topic areas in the coastal plan.
