The Department of Conservation is seeking a high caliber Supplier to work with a diverse Project Team through a process of co-design to develop a ‘Catchment Plan’ and ‘Implementation Guide’ for the LII/Ararira Drainage District, a significant sub-catchment of Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere.
The Catchment Plan will fundamentally change the way the drainage network is managed to enhance biodiversity and cultural values while ensuring productive land is drained effectively. The Implementation Guide will identify possible financial pathways, planning/consenting implications and phasing of works. The purpose of the Implementation Guide is to ensure the Catchment Plan is practical to implement.

The Project Team is made up of representatives from the Department of Conservation, Fonterra, Selwyn District Council, Environment Canterbury, Te Taumutu Rūnanga and the LII Drainage Committee.

A key component of success will be a Catchment Plan that serves multiple values, has support from across the Project Team and is adopted by Selwyn District Council.
