Feedback sought on erosion and sediment control guidelines

July 3rd, 2014
[TDC press release]

To help improve development practices and reduce the effects of sediment discharges, the Tasman District Council has developed a draft guideline for erosion and sediment control for land-disturbing activities.

The guideline is intended to provide the Council and land use managers with detailed design guidance and information about what constitutes best practice for erosion and sediment control for land-disturbing activities in Tasman District.

The guideline is currently a "draft for discussion". It is based on best practice used elsewhere that has been modified for Tasman's geology and rainfall.

However before Council adopts the guideline as a final version, they are seeking feedback from industry and landowners who are likely to use the guideline and anyone with an interest in erosion and sediment management in Tasman. They want to ensure the guideline provides practical advice, appropriate to Tasman.

The guidelines - and a smaller guide targeted at building sites - are available for download on Council's website at

Feedback on either the full guideline or small sites guidelines can be provided by contacting guideline coordinator Lisa McGlinchey by email at or by phone at (03) 543 8400, or by filling out the online feedback form.

Feedback received by the 29th August 2014 will be considered in a review of the draft document before the final version is then released for general use.
