Pat Van Berkel - Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington

Kia ora koutou, I’m Pat, a member of the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee tasked with making recommendations to Greater Wellington Regional Council on the future of our coastal and freshwater quality, and how our water is used. Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

I have had the opportunity to work with some of you through my involvement with Forest & Bird Upper Hutt. I also chair the local group – Friends of the Hutt River. I am passionate about the health of our waterways that should be safe for people to enjoy and would like to see a thriving natural ecology in our waterways.
This job isn’t easy. We need to find solutions to fix our waste and stormwater networks. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.

Survey Who has had FLU symptoms over last 3 months

Paul from Akatarawa

Very skeptical that Government say we have NOT had community spread . They wont know unless ALL with Flus symptoms indicate their symptoms and the data is gathered AND that health dept does community testing. Why is only testing those from Overseas NOT thos in community?????
Any visitors to NZ since Nov 2019 could have spread the COV-19 herein NZ,
We need a COMMUNITY survey of who has had Flu symptoms over last 3 months. PLEASE.
