Whangawehi Catchment Management Plan

A MoU between Tangata Whenua of Mahia, Landowners of Mahia, the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council and the Wairoa District Council sets the foundation for the development of a Catchment Management Plan for the Whangawehi Stream, the largest stream catchment of the Mahia Peninsula in the Northern Hawke’s Bay. A consultative Hui facilitated by Dr Olivier Ausseil was held at the Tuahuru Marae in September 2011, where participants identified community values associated with the Whangawehi catchment, and developed a vision for the Whangawehi Catchment Management Plan. Aquanet was subsequently engaged to develop Stage One of the Whangawehi Catchment management Plan.
