Nelson City Council


Due to the continuing dry conditions, Nelson City Council has now moved to stage three water restrictions in all urban areas.

Stage three restrictions place a total ban on the use of sprinklers and hoses, but hand watering with buckets and watering cans is still allowed.

As part of the stage three restrictions, Council is taking down the hanging baskets in the inner city and the watering of sports fields will cease (except for high value areas that will be too expensive to replace such as Trafalgar Park and Saxton Oval). Council will be hand watering some gardens and high value heritage trees. We have also reduced our water network flushing programme by 50 percent. The remaining flushing ensures that the water network meets the required level of drinking water standards. Steps are being taken to collect this flushed water for reuse in public spaces.

With no significant rainfall forecast, we ask all residents to comply with these water restrictions in order to protect the water supply for essential use in the longer term. Any further reductions that residents can make on a voluntary basis will be a great help.


Businesses are not included in the current restrictions but are urged to make any water savings they can on a voluntary basis.

The objectives of the fund are to invest in initiatives which contribute to community resilience through meeting the following criteria:

  • Build community connection and activation
  • Are community-led and build on existing community strengths and reflect local context
  • Strengthen the capacity and capability of communities
  • Create collaborative ways of working
  • Encourage innovation and creativity and encourage and enable social enterprise
  • Remove barriers to participation and resilience.

Submit a proposal

Organisations who wish to apply to the Community Resilience Partnership Fund are required to complete a two stage process.

The first stage is to submit a brief proposal. The proposal needs to include the following information:

  • A clear explanation of how your project aligns to the criteria of the Community Resilience Partnership Fund
  • The level of funding being requested
  • A project timeline and budget (including confirmation of any funds raised) 
  • Name and contact details for further information.
  • Attach a copy of your most recent annual accounts - if more than 12 months old also supply a recent financial update 

Successful proposals to the Community Resilience Partnership fund will then be invited on to a second stage for a more in-depth assessment.

Unsuccessful proposals may be declined or referred to more suitable sources of funding.
