The Proposed Thames-Coromandel District Plan provides for mining activities in conservation, coastal, rural and residential places!
You can write your own submission asking the council to prohibit mining in these areas – and we want to support you to do this.
Come to our workshop to ask questions, hear about the main issues in plain English and write the outline of your submission in a supportive environment.
Although every voice counts – writing your own submission carries much more weight – if you have the time to do this it will make a huge difference!

Archey’s Frog are one of the most endangered frogs in the world – the Coromandel should be a treasure house of biodiversity, not the end of the line for one of the world’s most important frogs.
The proposed District Plan provides for underground mining in conservation areas – threatening sensitive habitats for native species such as the Archey’s Frog with industrialisation and vibration.
We want the conservation estate to be preserved for generations to come – join us, SUBMIT NOW!
