For details of how to comment on the Draft CMS ...

 Submissions close Tuesday 4 April 2017.

The draft Wellington CMS will replace the Wellington CMS 1996-2005, and parts of the Wanganui CMS 1997-2008 and Hawke’s Bay CMS 1994-2004.

Since the previous Wellington CMS was made operative, the Wellington CMS region’s boundaries have changed to include:

  • some of the Manawatū-Rangitikei area, once covered by the the Wanganui CMS (1997-2008), and
  • the Ruahine Forest Park and adjoining land, once covered in the Hawke’s Bay CMS (1994-2004).

The new boundaries match the Wellington Conservation Board boundary. Wellington CMS boundaries (PDF, 321K) (opens in new window)

The draft Wellington CMS (2016-2026) is simpler, shorter, more concise and Place-based. It is consistent with the other newly reviewed CMSs, and integrates the Department’s national priorities with local priorities, that have been identified with tangata whenua, the community, and others.
