Project Little Oneroa aims to improve the health of Little Oneroa Stream and catchment area and ultimately create a safe and sustainable environment for future generations of Waiheke Island residents.
Project Little Oneroa volunteers are working on a door-to-door campaign in the stream’s catchment area, providing water minimisation tools and septic tank maintenance advice. Free workshops, on topics such as installing waterless composting toilets, have also been popular.
The project is led by the Waiheke Resources Trust, which is working alongside Waiheke Local Board and Auckland Council. Funding has come via Clean Stream Waiheke Limited, the Environmental Initiatives Fund and Waiheke Local Board.
“Little Oneroa Stream doesn’t look dangerous, but it is,” says Waiheke Resources Trust Chair John Stansfield.
“As the kaitiaki (caretakers) of Waiheke Island, it is time that the community took responsibility for our waterways.”
Little Oneroa Lagoon Action Plan Workshops
The Waiheke Resources Trust in partnership with the Waiheke Local Board and Auckland Council would like to invite you to a series of facilitated workshops for the purpose of developing the Little Oneroa Lagoon Action Plan; a community-council model to improve water quality in the lagoon.
The workshops will be held on:
- Thursday 8, 15 and 22 October from 9 am to 12 pm, and
- Saturday 10, 17 and 24 October from 10 am to 1 pm.
The programme for the workshops is as follows:
- Day 1. Situational analysis and problem definition.
- Day 2. Review outcomes of Day 1. Define the objectives and actions to achieve the objectives, and prioritise the actions.
- Day 3. Review outcomes of Day 2. Prepare the Action Plan.
The times have been chosen for your convenience, so you only need to attend the Thursday or Saturday sessions.
The workshops will be held at the Waiheke Local Board’s office at the Oneroa Bowling Club, 100 Oceanview Road, Alison Park, Waiheke.
Register for the action plan workshops, choosing either the Thursday or Saturday workshops.
