Sarah Watson

Special Counsel

I am a Resource Management lawyer and advise clients on a variety of environmental issues including regional and district planning issues, gravel extraction, mining, subdivision developments and applications to take water.

I have represented clients on a range of matters at district council, regional council and Environment Court hearings.

I’ve built up significant expertise on irrigation projects and gravel extraction. My recent experience includes advising in relation to applications to take and use water for irrigation and hydro generation in the Hurunui District and both land based and river gravel extraction applications.
