Overview

The project involves removing vegetation which is currently choking a 13 km section of the Ashley River Rakahuri between Ashley Gorge and approximately 1 km east of Cottles Road. This choking of the river by mature trees, mostly willow, and brush weeds is causing the river to spread laterally, resulting in erosion and loss of productive farmland.
This proposal is the first stage of a project to restore a more natural braiding river regime for the Ashly Rakahuri and Okuku Rivers. The end result will be reduced flood risk together with improved natural character, including habitat for native species.
