Kia ora,
 
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. 
 
We’re starting to gather information for the Whitianga/Mercury Bay Harbour and Catchment Management Plan, and we need your input to identify the plan’s direction and actions.  
 
The plan will cover from Waitaia Bay through to Sailors Grave, including the landward area, and Whitianga Harbour and Purangi Estuary. Once developed, it will inform agencies and help us prioritise and plan for specific works. It will also help landowners and groups to identify work they can carry out to help improve the environmental health of our harbour and catchment.

Your feedback is appreciated. If you have any queries, please contact:
