Proposed Plan Change 6AA

Otago Regional Council (ORC) is proposing a plan change to postpone the date when certain rules controlling discharge contaminant concentration and rules on nitrogen leaching come into force, from 1 April 2020 to 1 April 2026.

Proposed Plan Change 6AA is the first of two plan changes that will address significant issues with the Water Plan and strengthen the plan’s existing policy framework, in advance of developing a comprehensive plan review. It is expected that the full review of the Water Plan will be completed, and new planning provisions will be operative, before 1 April 2026.

Consultation on Proposed Plan Change 6AA was undertaken by ORC in August 2019, in accordance with Clauses 3 and 4A of Schedule 1 to the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).

Proposed Plan Change 6AA was notified by ORC on Saturday 5 October 2019, in accordance with Clause 5 of Schedule 1 to the RMA. ORC also prepared a Section 32 evaluation report outlining the rationale for the changes proposed under Proposed Plan Change 6AA. You can view these documents by clicking on the appropriate link below.

As the proposed plan change relates to water, the amendments to rules in proposed Plan Change 6AA will take immediate legal effect from the date of notification, pursuant to section 86B(1)(a) and (3) of the Resource Management Act 1991.
