Undertaking a Collaboration Process
The development of the Strategy has involved ongoing input, workshops and discussion with iwi, local government and central government agencies, local community groups and key stakeholders.
Identifying Key Landscape Layers
A ‘layering approach’ considering a range of landscape and seascape factors was used to analyse existing factors valued in the region.
Vision and Six Linked Strategies
Our vision is to create a series of trails that join together to connect us with our coast and forests and the presence of the ocean that is always in our midst. Linking together a network of tracks and trails projects to create a connected landscape and coastscape.
In-depth Study of the Region’s Network
Desktop and site study of the region help identify and develop options to enlist the enthusiasm of community involvement along with processes of land-use change, subdivision, covenanting and conservation to build a regional scale network of tracks and trails.
