consultation meetings in your area

Consultation meetings on long term plans to protect kauri are coming to a marae or community venue near you over the next two weeks. We're letting you know because you were involved in earlier consultation rounds, and we want to hear from you again.

This is a valuable opportunity to have your say in shaping long term plans to protect kauri from dieback disease. These plans include new rules that could affect the way you access kauri forests, or require you to carry out protection measures if you have kauri forest on your land. 

Hui and community meetings are happening in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, the Coromandel and Bay of Plenty from 2nd of March - the full details are at We'll be talking about our refreshed strategy, a proposed pest management plan for kauri dieback disease, and options for the agency required to implement the plan.

Material on our consultation proposals can be found on our website. Consultation closes on 18 March 2019.
