Hokitika Fresh Water Management Unit
The Hokitika Freshwater Management Unit (FMU) community was established in 2020 and met for the first time in June 2020.
The purpose of the Group is to identify the values and issues of the community in the catchment around freshwater quality and quantity, and to make recommendations to the council about what future plan provisions and actions may be needed to manage land and water resources in the FMU.
The Hokitika FMU Group consists of twelve members, including seven from the community, with a range of backgrounds and interests related to land and water management within the FMU. The Group was selected based on a cross section of values, understanding and perspectives in the community. The Group also includes two elected representatives from the Westland District Council, and one from the West Coast Regional Council. Poutini Ngāi Tahu has three representatives.
