Whangawehi walkway survey

The field work regarding the Whangawehi walkway survey was completed on Tuesday the 8th of October. It took a couple of attempts to cover the full length of the walkway. The computer work can now start. A big thank you to Kevin Taylor from Survey Gisborne Limited and his team (Allan) for assisting us with this work. A big thank you too, to the New Zealand Access Commission for providing financial and technical support. We will keep you informed on the next steps.

Fiona Clark visits Whangawehi

On the 11th of June, Fiona Clark from MPI visited the catchment to be more familiar with the restoration project and the walkway. Fiona was interested in better understanding where the walkway was, its connection with the DOC bush loop and the role it will play for the District.

Thank you Fiona for spending the time to come and visit us, we are looking forward to working with you more closely.
