The Ministry for Primary Industries seeks feedback from stakeholders and tangata whenua on proposed operational changes to the East Coast Forestry Project (ECFP).
The ECFP funds erosion treatments in the Gisborne District. Since 1992 landowners have used the fund to treat 42,000 hectares. Approximately 60,000 hectares of untreated land remains and landowners need support to treat the remaining land. That is why there are proposed changes to the ECFP.
Consultation will start on Wednesday 5 February 2014 and close midnight, Sunday 16 March 2014. Feedback from submissions will be considered and proposals developed for approval by Cabinet.
