Environmental projects see funding bump for ChCh West Melton Water Zone

Wednesday, April 17, 2024   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: water, management, funding, waterways, environmental health

Environment Canterbury media release: 16th April 2024

Seven local progressive environmental projects are to receive a combined total of $75,000 in funding from the Christchurch West Melton Water Zone Committee this year.

We allocate funding annually for water zone committees to recommend support for community-led initiatives that aim to improve the environment and help meet Canterbury Water Management Strategy objectives.

Find out more about the Canterbury Water Management Strategy.

Each committee outlines its steps for meeting these targets in an Action Plan for 2021-2024.

The Christchurch West Melton Water Zone Committee Action Plan addresses environmental harm in three broad categories:

  • he tangata/the people, mahi tahi/partnership and engagement;
  • he huringa āhaurangi/a changing climate; and
  • he whenua ora/a living environment.

“Our committee is chuffed to be funding such forward-thinking and progressive initiatives that are deeply rooted in local communities. We are looking forward to following the success of these projects throughout the year,” said Oscar Bloom, Chair of the Christchurch West Melton Water Zone Committee.

“Our local community is essential to reaching our objectives, and are very grateful to have the opportunity to support our people on the ground actioning this work.”

Community support a priority

The Christchurch West Melton Water Zone Committee will be monitoring these initiatives and documenting their outcomes.

"The Zone Committee is expecting to be able to empower community through funding again next year, and community support will be the priority for the committee," said Oscar Bloom.

"We encourage prospective applicants to contact us at any time if they have a project that needs a helping hand and aligns with one or more of our Action Plan goals.

"A progress report detailing the outcomes of the funded initiatives will be available to read later this year."
