Waikato Region review important to get right
03 Mar 11

Submissions to the Proposed Waikato Regional Policy Statement (PWRPS) closed this week. The Waikato as a surfing region stretches from Mokau to Port Waikato in the west and covers the Coromandel in the east and has several surfbreaks of national significance under its jurisdiction.

Surfbreak Protection Society has submitted that protection of nationally significant surf breaks in the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement be reflected in the PWRPS, as well as mechanisms for identifying and protecting all other known breaks in the region, including the protection of water quality and maintenance of access at all breaks’.
