Recruitment of Ecologist (policy)

Decision Maker: National Park Authority

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Members considered a proposal for an additional Ecologist post on the establishment to deal with policy development, implementation and monitoring to address the phosphate issue.


Members were generally supportive and recognised the advocacy part of this role.  It was also suggested that the role should be general rather than specific so that it could be adapted to meet changing needs in future.


The point was also made that members needed to understand the cumulative financial impact on decisions to add to the staff establishment.


RESOLVED:  That an Ecologist (Policy) is added as a full-time permanent post to the establishment.
