Productive land uses - findings

A productive vegetable garden in the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area.

Of the 23.7% (442) of respondents who provided feedback on productive land uses, 86.9% (384) were in support, though that support often came with conditions. Having an ecological focus was the most frequently mentioned condition. Those not in support highlighted concerns with farming (especially dairy) and with private or commercial ownership of the land.

“I think productive land uses should be a main priority - see the proposals for urban food gardens and aquacultures.”

“Appropriate productive land use will help feed the city and improve its resilience.”
