Make a submission on the Waikato Regional Council coastal plan

The Waikato Regional Council (WRC) is seeking the public’s views on whether they need to restrict particular recreational or commercial activities in some coastal areas. The WRC will review public feedback and include any restrictions or area closures in the updated 10-year Coastal Plan. Submission deadline was Friday, 22 July. It is now Friday 29 July. 

The WRC area covers the west coast from Franklin down to Mokau, and from the Firth of Thames down the Coromandel east coast to Homunga Bay, almost to Waihi. 

We say fishing activities in the marine environment need to be managed using the Fisheries Act. That’s because only Fisheries Act tools are capable of restoring marine ecosystems by rebuilding fish abundance and diversity.

Make your submission using the form below.

Deadline: UPDATED now Friday 29 July 2022
