The Community Panel is a key component in the collaborative process to develop Wharekawa Coast 2120. The Panel will consider a broad range of issue and, with technical support and advice, develop recommendations to the Joint Working Party, that will inform the shape, content and direction of Wharekawa Coast 2120.
