Canterbury Regional River Gravel Management Strategy

The Canterbury Regional River Gravel Management Strategy was prepared under the Local Government Act (2002) and should be used to inform decision makers about the management of gravel sourced from Canterbury’s rivers.

A total of 19 written submissions were received on a draft version of this document after it was publically notified in May 2012.

An independent hearing was held in September 2012.

Nine submitters presented oral submissions and Environment Canterbury Commissioners adopted an amended strategy on 1st November 2012.
