Setting our direction for improving freshwater in Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland

Summary of Feedback Phase 2

This report summarises feedback received during the public consultation period of 3 November to 4 December 2023 on setting our direction for improving freshwater in Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland. This report aims to capture key themes regarding the views and preferences of those that submitted feedback, rather than detail every point of feedback received. This report does not include any advice or recommendations for decision making.


We received a total of 3,500 submissions. The council’s consultation was held to check back in with the community and get their views of proposed measures to protect, use, and allocate freshwater.

This work is driven by the current National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management (NPS-FM) which will affect how Aucklanders manage their land and water use.

The NPS-FM applies to rivers, streams, lakes, wetlands, aquifers (groundwater) and springs. It is a government policy that requires councils to put the health of freshwater first, then consider the needs of people and other demands for water use.

The council must currently notify changes to the Auckland Unitary Plan by 31 December 2024 and must also prepare action plans to support stakeholders and community groups to improve the region’s freshwater resources as soon as practical. The new government’s changes would extend the deadline by three years to 31 December 2027 and amend how Te Mana o te Wai provisions apply.

Early in 2024, the council will work through the government’s initiative to review and replace the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020, the implications on roll-out timing and advise the impact on its own planning and implementation approaches.

There is more information here on Auckland Council’s current plan to implement the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management in Tāmaki Makaurau.

    의견서 제출 마감일은 2023년 12월 4일입니다.

    오클랜드시는 담수(freshwater)의 건강을 최선으로 유지하기 위해 우리가 개선할 점이 무엇인지를 궁리하고 있습니다. 지난 해 보내주신 여러분의 의견에 힘입어,  담수 관리 국가 정책서(National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management :NPS-FM)를 기반으로 하여  오클랜드의 담수를 보다 효율적으로 관리할 수 있는 비전과 가치를 개발 할 수 있었습니다.

    NPS-FM은 뉴질랜드의 담수 관리 지침을 위한 정부의 정책서로서  전국의 강, 하천, 호수, 습지, 대수층(지하수), 샘물 등을 아우르며, 담수가 연안 해역과 기후 변화에 미치는 영향도 반영합니다.

    이를 위해 다음과 같은 항목을 구축하였습니다.
