The Regional Zone Committee has been getting through a huge volume of work as committee members work to understand the key regional issues for water management in Canterbury.
The Regional Implementation Programme (RIP) was prepared by the Regional Committee following an engagement process including public and stakeholder meetings, and feedback from people and organisations with an interest in water management. Environment Canterbury received and endorsed the Regional Implementation Programme at its council meeting on 31 May 2012.
The RIP identifies four priority areas which need to be addressed at a regional level to meet the targets in the Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS):
The Regional Committee has four working groups, which report back to the full committee, to look into these priority areas. In 2015, a Recreational Amenity Working Group is also being established.
