The Primary Land Users Group, or P.L.U.G. was formed in 2016 to provide information and support for worried rural landowners, and the wider community, who will be directly or indirectly affected by the rules proposed by PC1. We support the overall intention of PC1 in protecting and enhancing the water quality in the Waikato and Waipa rivers. We however, believe that PC1 must be economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable. In its current form, it is not. We are working alongside like-minded organisations and technical experts to achieve a sustainable outcome for all through the submission process.
