Rural Roadshow

Freshwater policy reforms and the One Plan

As a farmer in our region, you’re probably aware of how the National Environmental Standards for Freshwater impact you, your farm and your community, but you may not be as aware of the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management (NPS-FM).

The NPS-FM requires a One Plan revision that will likely impact you and your community, and the draft revision must be ready for public consultation by the end of 2024. We want our rural communities to get involved in this process and will provide multiple opportunities for you to hear from us and have your say between now and then.

This roadshow is a great chance to chat directly with our rural advice, science and policy teams, and learn more about some of the significant changes around freshwater regulation.

Check out the schedule below to find an event near you*, and visit our Oranga Wai | Our Freshwater Future site for more information on the implementation of the NPS-FM. You can also sign up to our e-newsletter to stay up to date on all things freshwater in our region.

*Events in the Whanganui catchment will be added soon.
