A refreshed process for Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari was announced in September, with the final Hauraki Gulf / Tīkapa Moana Marine Spatial Plan now to be delivered in 2016.

New leadership was confirmed with Paul Beverley appointed as Independent Chair of the Stakeholder Working Group and Nigel Bradley confirmed as Lead Plan Writer.

Project Steering Group co-chair Councillor Penny Webster said extra time and breathing space for important discussions was required as the identified topics are complex and wide-ranging.

The Stakeholder Working Group reconvened their work in October and will continue to meet monthly to work through the issues and options identified through roundtable discussions with stakeholders.
