Chris Severne
Candidate for Waitematā Local Board

I have lived and worked in the Waitematā Ward for over 30 years. I have a passion for the environment and the restoration of the Hauraki Gulf.

As Chair of the Opito Bay Ratepayers Association and with the support of the local iwi Ngāti Hei, we successfully pushed the Government to place a 2-year rahui on the taking of scallops in over 500,000Ha (45%) of the Gulf. Also, as Chair of the G.I.F.T. committee at Foundation North, I was instrumental in the release of $11M for volunteer activity and research to improve the state of the Gulf.

If elected, I will continue working to protect the environment of the Gulf and the Waitematā Ward, balance growth with greenspace provision; and protect our special heritage and character zones.
