Sustainable Hill Country Project

The Gisborne region is prone to hill country erosion.  The Sustainable Hill Country (SHC) programme aims to increase protection of highly erodible land.  Our Tairawhiti Resource Management Plan (TRMP) requires that areas of land in Overlay 3A be treated with effective tree planting or reserve fencing.  See Chapter 7 of TRMP
