Erosion Control Funding Increase Confirmed

Nathan Guy, Minister for Primary Industries (MPI), has confirmed Greater Wellington Regional Council as one of six regions to receive a share of $8.8 million for erosion control work under an extension of the government’s Hill Country Erosion Fund (HCEF).

The Greater Wellington Region has received $1.15 million to be allocated over the next 4 years, a significant increase on the $750,000 received over the last six years.

This funding will allow the GWRC Land Management Department to expand the Wellington Regional Erosion Control Initiative (WRECI) well beyond the five areas where this program has already been delivered.

Erosion control programs aim to reduce sediment loss to waterways, keep topsoil on the land and maintain productivity, protect property and infrastructure, as well as work to moderate flood risk for the wider community.
