District Plan - Coastal Environment and Natural Character Overlays

In response to appeals in 2018, decisions relating to the Coastal Environment and Natural Character overlays, Council in 2018, revised its position on the extent of each overlay to give better effect to the requirements of the Resource Management Act 1991 (the Act) and the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement

Envrionment Court decisions were issued on the 13 January, 4 & 12 March, 28 May and 26 June 2020.

Council sought direction from the Environment Court in 2018 on the process to deal with these changes and was directed to notify potentially affected parties of the proposed amendments.  As part of this process the amendments proposed by our Council to the sections of the Proposed District Plan relevant to the Coastal Environment and Natural Character overlays, including amendments resulting from consent orders made in appeals and amendments that would result from draft consent orders lying in Court, are publicly available.
