Nelson Nature is Nelson City Council’s whole of environment biodiversity programme, working with the community to maintain and restore biodiversity in the Nelson Region.
A key outcome of Nelson Nature is to protect and enhance remaining significant biodiversity sites on private land. These sites are referred to as SNAs (Significant Natural Areas).
Working in partnership with landowners, Nelson Nature seeks to achieve this outcome by addressing threats to biodiversity on the highest value sites in the region. This work primarily involves the control of pest plant species and the re-establishment of native habitat.
SNAs on private land are located throughout the Nelson Region, with the majority being in the North Nelson Region. Some of these remnants are on iwi owned land.
The objectives of biodiversity work being undertaken on privately owned SNAs are to:
(a) Maintain and restore significant remnants of biodiversity in the Nelson Region.
(b) Support landowners to protect and enhance remnants.
(c) Help to meet Council’s obligations under the Resource Management Act in relation to the protection of biodiversity.
Works will be allocated to the Panel of Suppliers by either:
(a) Competitive quotes based on the supplier’s expertise, proposed solution and best value for money, or
(b) Direct source, based on the best fit for purpose.
