Environment

Local governments play a central role in protecting the environment, reducing waste and safeguarding biodiversity. The worsening state of New Zealand’s lakes and rivers is a major challenge for local councils, which work with regional councils in the management of water resources in their area.

  • Minimise waste from all streams across the district through advocacy, education and a kerbside food composting service.

    Ensure our parks and reserves are predator free as a step towards Predator Free Coromandel, and to lead by example removing weed species.

    Enable innovative solutions to environmental problems; incentives for water tank installation and riparian planting to create public space.

  • Publish list of waterways and levels of pollution to focus attention on water quality in the Thames-Coromandel District Council region.

    Coordinate a multi-party strategy to combat invasive plants, especially privet, in the Thames hills.

    Continue to support community resource recovery centres and set targets for waste minimisation including food waste collection and composting.

  • Minimise waste from all streams through cradle-to-grave education, advocating point-of-sale reduction, and support of food waste recycling.

    Evaluate and support biodiversity and pest control measures, seek sound evidence and adopt environmentally friendly effective practices.

    Advocate for and support community care groups for stream edge planting, pest control and support for rainwater harvesting and storage.

  • Three Waters promises to take care of water quality.

    Pest control coordinated by council is essential for an effective, sustainable outcome from privet and vermin.

    I would like to see an end to landfill through recycling and technology-based solutions as used in Germany and Sweden to process the waste.

  • Create a consistent yet adaptable water policy focusing on supply, quality and control measures, to ensure policy is achieved and upheld.

    Formulate an effective on-going pest eradication initiative that works, providing employment and an awareness of preserving all of nature.

    Stop double handling of waste, eliminate ignorance of public where the importance of their role in all our own waste removal is concerned.
