The second round of consultation on the development of the Kauri Dieback Management Plan and the design of a management agency to protect kauri is now closed.

This was the second of three planned consultation rounds in 2018 to inform actions to strengthen protection for kauri.

Between 20 August and 18 September 2018 we asked for your feedback and ideas regarding the scope and range of powers, and the design of a management agency to protect kauri. We held 25 hui/meetings in kauri lands and also received responses through email and letters.

Thank you to everyone who contributed. Your feedback will contribute to the development of the Kauri Dieback Management Plan and the establishment of a management agency to implement the plan.

We are looking at your feedback and responses, and soon we’ll tell you what we heard.

Consultation Background

At the end of 2017, the Government announced tougher measures to help combat the spread of kauri dieback disease. One of the measures is a National Pest Management Plan, the highest protection available under the Biosecurity Act 1993. It will mean a nationally coordinated, long-term approach to the management of kauri dieback disease.

To get the best result for kauri, we're seeking your ideas and thoughts to help us develop the plan.
