  • People need to be able to swim in our rivers when they want to and Council needs to give confidence by monitoring our water quality.
  • I will ensure that Council works with our community to manage land and water well, supporting our Freshwater and Land Advisory Groups in the Takaka and Waimea Basins.
  • I will protect and enhance our environment while supporting sustainable growth for our industries. We need to leave our environment in an improved state for our children and grandchildren.
  • I will continue to work to ensure Tasman District has affordable and user-friendly environmental management.
  • I will continue to work to protect the long term quality of our environment.
  • I recognise climate change is a reality and will create issues which must be addressed in Tasman District.
  • I support sustainable management of resources.
  • I believe Council must maximise waste management for recycling.
