Tiromoana Bush

Updated: May 2, 2021

Transwaste Canterbury Ltd, who were wanting to develop the Landfill, put forward an ambitious plan to protect and regenerate the bush and open it up for public access as part of their resource consent application for the Landfill. Consent was granted on the basis the company would protect, restore and manage a 407-hectare Conservation Management Area, now called Tiromoana Bush, which includes remnant and regenerating forest and shrub land, streams, wetlands, ponds and coastal margins.

Dr David Norton, a professor at the University of Canterbury's Te Kura Ngahere | School of Forestry, was contracted to prepare The Tiromoana Bush Restoration Management Plan in 2004. webpage
