The long-term aspiration for this project is to develop unused land, improve business capability and move from passive owners to active managers of their land.

The Trust will assess their assets and identify options to better utilise and bring the land into production.  This will include exploring re-afforestation including mānuka for honey production or other commercial activities and the potential of aquaculture such as koura farming.
