Auckland Council is currently engaged in a number of significant programmes and projects that focus on how Auckland’s natural resources are managed. Two of these programmes are in response to changes at a national level, the National Policy Statement: Freshwater Management 2014 (NPS-FM) with implementation through council’s Wai Ora Healthy Waterways Programme and Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) as a preliminary means of addressing aspects of the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement (NZCPS). There is a clear overlap between the two programmes in the area of water quality, not least the natural ‘river to sea’ connection between the land, fresh water and coastal environments.
