Southland District Council is reviewing the Natural Features and Landscapes section of the District Plan (2.3 Natural Features and Landscapes) and the ways Southland’s natural features and landscapes are managed. Southland has some incredible natural spaces, and this is all about looking after what we’ve got for future generations.

We want you to be part of the conversation the whole way through so the solutions are the right ones for everybody. We are running a survey to know your views and help us to identify essential areas in the District. It would be helpful for this project if you could fill in the survey and be part of this process.

At the moment, we’re working on identifying where the important natural features and landscapes are within Southland. We want to know what your view is.
