Get involved with the Christchurch - West Melton Zone Committee

We need your knowledge, passion, experience, and ability to work collaboratively to help deliver benefits from Christchurch’s water resource to your community

The Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS) is an innovative and bold new way of managing our fresh water.

The strategy affects every person in Canterbury, because it sets goals for freshwater management for now and the future.

It will help to ensure safe drinking water supplies, sustainable farming practices and clean rivers and streams, as well as enhancing recreational opportunities and protecting environment and cultural values.

Each zone committee has developed a set of water management recommendations to deliver the community's aspirations for water management - for a copy of the Christchurch West Melton Zone Implementation Programme summary click here.

The Christchurch - West Melton Zone Committee is calling for expressions of interest for new community members to enable new perspectives to be represented. 

Applicants need to show they have experience in working collaboratively and engaging with communities.

They also need to be competent in dealing with technical and often complex issues, must be able to attend the meetings, and live in (or have a significant relationship with) the zone.

The committee meets monthly for a public meeting which usually lasts several hours. There are also other workshops and field-trips that members are expected to attend. Click here to learn more.
