The Community Catchment Plan is our shared roadmap to improve and maintain the long-term health of Upper Clutha’s freshwater, created in 2020 with extensive community consultation. It identifies risks to the health of our waterways, gaps in our understanding and 60 actions we need to take in order to mitigate the effects of human activity on our ecosystems.
THE 60 ACTIONS OF THE COMMUNITY CATCHMENT PLAN
Some of the actions fall within the responsibility of the Otago Regional Council and the Queenstown Lakes District Council. Other actions will be led by the community. Most of the actions fall within one of these 5 areas:
