KAURI DIEBACK DISEASE CONSULTATION

Round Three is Now Closed

Round three of consultation on the future protection of kauri is now closed. 

In this round we presented the final refreshed national strategy, a proposed National Pest Management Plan for Kauri Dieback Disease and two options for the national agency required to implement the plan and deliver on the strategy.

Consultation round Three

The pest management plan includes a set of proposed rules that could affect the way you access kauri forests, or require you to carry out actions to protect kauri if you have kauri forest on your land.

We wanted your views on how workable you think our proposals are, and the impacts they might have on you and your community, iwi, business or group. We wanted to know if there are any major issues you believe we have missed, that could significantly affect our proposals. And we’d like your views on the best agency model to manage the protection of kauri in the future.

Following this consultation round we will make final recommendations to ministers.

Consultation ran from 18 February to 18 March 2019. We also ran a series of hui and community meetings in the kaurilands in early March.

Past Consultation Documents

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.
