We are still waiting for two other nominees to confirm ahead of the meeting this Thursday.

"We want to thank everyone once again for attending the public meeting," say Garry Towler who is Council's project manager for the Proposed Cathedral Coast Walkway. "The membership is reflective of all the different stakeholders in the Proposed Walk, with the first Stage being planned from the Blow Hole at Hahei through to the Purangi Estuary," says Mr Towler.

Also on the agenda for the first meeting will be discussion on the terms of reference and setting up a regular meeting schedule.

The Stakeholders Working Group will meet with members of the Project Governance Group.
