ECan 2016

“The mixed governance plan means a majority of ECan councillors would be elected at the local body elections in October 2016, with four elected at large in Christchurch, one elected from North Canterbury for the districts of Kaikōura, Hurunui and Waimakariri, one elected from mid-Canterbury for the Selwyn and Ashburton districts, and one from South Canterbury representing the Timaru, Mackenzie, Waimate districts and the parts of Waikati north of the Waitaki River. The chair and deputy chair of the mixed model council will be elected post-October 2016 by the elected and appointed councillors. The mixed council will carry out a representation review in 2018 under the standard Local Government Act provisions to determine the make-up and wards of the fully elected council for 2019.”

ECan wants polluted lakes exempted
“The government is currently consulting on its National Policy Statement for freshwater and has proposed that the national freshwater standards should include lakes and lagoons which periodically open to the sea. That would include Lake Ellesmere and Lake Forsyth in Canterbury – which consistently rank as the most polluted in the country.” – 2.5.16
