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.

Late last year, 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 have processed your feedback and been defining and investigating issues and options, gathering relevant technical information, and working with landowners on mapping that supports the plan.

We will be back talking to our communities again next year about our draft options for how we grow as a district while caring for our environment. You can read feedback we've received and more about specific projects here.

Landscapes and Coastal Environment Projects - Thank you

Thank you to everyone who has shared initial feedback on the Landscapes and Coastal Environment Projects - it has been incredibly valuable. We’ve heard a range of perspectives and recognise the hard work and passion in our communities.

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