Thames-Coromandel/Hauraki landowners receive numerous grants from Waikato Regional Council to improve the environment

Waikato Regional Council has made numerous small-scale grants to Thames-Coromandel/Hauraki landowners and community groups under its Small Scale Community Initiatives Fund. Local landowners and groups from Kararagahake, to Tairua, Mercury Bay, Thames, Te Kouma, and Coromandel have received almost $50,000 to carry out pest trapping and other restoration work. The average grant is in the vicinity of $4000. Once again, local groups have been recognised for their exceptional volunteer work to improve the environment, receiving nearly 1/3 of the total number of grants made throughout the Waikato region.

This builds on the success that local groups have achieved with other regional council grants over the last three years totalling almost $2 million. In addition, $ millions more have been secured from central government for other large-scale projects on kauri dieback wilding pine control and to keep local rivers swimmable.

  1. Kia ora Denis

    just to let you know how disappointed I am, as is my wife Alison Carter, on you not being re-elected.

    You have done more of value than any of your predecessors in the last 30 years that we have lived in the electorate

    and we were certain that you would get back in. All the very best for your pursuits in the future and Kia haha
