Creating the Tasman Environment Plan

Tasman is a special place to live. At Tasman District Council, we're working with our communities on a new resource management plan that will help to keep it special for generations to come. We're calling this plan Aorere ki uta, Aorere ki tai - Tasman Environment Plan.

The Tasman Environment Plan will replace our existing resource management plans, the Tasman Regional Policy Statement and the Tasman Resource Management Plan.

Over October and November 2020, locals shared their experiences and views on the district’s environmental and development issues and opportunities through this website and 21 community-based events. Thank you to everyone who took part in this first round of engagement. Our policy planners are currently processing feedback and you can read the feedback we received on the 'Have Your Say' and 'Your Place on the Map' pages of this website.

Feedback: Landscapes and Coastal Environment Projects

We are currently gathering feedback on the Landscapes and Coastal Environment Projects. Thank you to everyone who attended the recent drop-in events and shared local knowledge and your future aspirations. We’ve heard a range of perspectives and recognise the hard work and passion in our communities.

If you were not able to make an event but have feedback or questions about the draft Outstanding Natural Landscapes and Features or revised Coastal Environment area, please share it here before the end of June. You can also email feedback to or phone 03 543 7655.

We have received high volumes of feedback about this project and hope to get back to everyone before the end of this month to answer any questions or gather more information.

This project is in the early stages and it’s important to know that before anything is finalised, we will be in touch again on the firmed up boundaries and proposed policy response for your area.
