Key messages from the day were:

The Government should suport The Plan process and stay out of it's developement. They get their opportunity later to debate the issues.

Water for the environment should be scourced not predominately from willing sellers but from a diverse mix of water saving projects and targetted buybacks.

Regional assistance is required to compliment the Plans transition.
