Te Hoiere Pelorus Restoration Project
Te Hoiere Pelorus Project is a catchment restoration project, aiming to look after the whole catchment from the mountains to the sea (ki uta ki tai). Phase One of the project covers the Te Hoiere Catchment. Phase Two will also include the Pelorus and Kenepuru Sounds. A key step involves the community coming together, and sharing their ideas for an Integrated Catchment Enhancement Plan (ICEP) for Te Hoiere. The ICEP identifies the community’s aspirations and prioritises actions towards achieving these aspirations. To find out more about the project check out Te Hoiere/Pelorus Restoration Project on Facebook.
We want to hear about your experiences, any changes you’ve noticed and your ideas for making the area better in the future. To share your ideas click HERE.
