We are your regional council, working to manage the air, land and water so that it can be enjoyed by everybody.
We work in partnership with the communities of Canterbury to promote the sustainable management of our resources. Sustainable management means that we use innovative, cost effective and technically excellent methods and ensure that our decision making is based on the highest quality information.
By managing the environment sustainably, our region’s economic, social and cultural wellbeing can flourish.
Environmental Services is part of the Defence Estate and Infrastructure (DEI) unit in the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF). We have a national team who work across New Zealand to manage NZDF’s environmental risks. Our work involves a wide range of environmental aspects including contamination, stormwater, heritage and ecology.
