The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
As the District changes over time, identifying significant and clear links with the past contributes to and adds a sense of identity. Historic heritage resources are valued for their quality and ability to create a sense of place and community. These values are directly related to the Significance Criteria set out in the Canterbury Regional Policy Statement 2013 (CRPS).
Trees have environmental qualities, including amenity value and character. In addition to any specific historical or broader community importance they have, Protected Trees provide colour, form and focal points to most urban environments.
In this way, Protected Trees are often important elements in enhancing streetscapes as they provide relief in areas where buildings are dominant. They contribute to the setting of Historic Heritage and new areas of development or land use.
Beyond their aesthetic benefits, they have ecological qualities outside of forested areas, such as providing bird habitats, enabling soil stabilisation and offering wind protection and shade.
The loss of Protected Trees is irreversible, particularly those that have rarity, historical or community value.
