DOC asking for submissions on the disposal of Stewardship lands

May 30, 2022

Have your say on the proposed reclassifications for 504 pieces of stewardship land on the West Coast before final decisions are made. Submissions close 26 July 2022.

Stewardship land is the term used for land that was allocated to DOC when it was formed in 1987. It includes former state forest and Crown land that was considered to have conservation value.

There are over 3,000 pieces of stewardship land of varying sizes across New Zealand.

DOC is supporting the reclassification of stewardship land to ensure land with conservation and cultural values is protected for future generations to enjoy.
