Proposed Southland Water and Land Plan

As a regional council we have a responsibility to ensure the region’s natural resources are sustainably managed so that they are available for future generations to use and enjoy.

Maintaining and improving Southland’s water quality is our biggest challenge and first priority.

The proposed Southland Water and Land Plan seeks to address activities that are known to have a significant effect on water quality, such as land use intensification, wintering and stock exclusion from waterways.  Download the plan below or click here to read more about how the plan was formed.
