The creation of the Tasman Environment Plan is a once-in-a-generation chance to shape our future development and protect our natural environment. Now is the time to have your say.
TDC’s next round of community engagement is underway as they prepare to draft Aorere ki uta, Aorere ki tai – Tasman Environment Plan (TEP).
In 2020, we shared our views and experiences on the District’s environmental and development issues and opportunities. there are now some draft options to consider around how we grow as a District, how our places look and feel, and how to care for our environment.
Staff and Councillors are keen to have conversations with you about some of Tasman’s tricky issues and options for how we might address them through the TEP. What they learn will make a difference in how the TEP is shaped.

*A list of times and places to talk face-to-face
