Proposed Otago Regional Policy Statement 2021

ORC has notified a Proposed Otago Regional Policy Statement 2021. This document sets the direction for future management of our region’s natural and physical resources.

It sets out what we want for Otago, what’s stopping us achieving this, and how we will solve those problems.

The RPS identifies the significant resource management issues for the region. It also explains how national direction on resource management will be applied in the Otago context and provides direction on how to balance potentially conflicting requirements.

The RPS doesn’t contain rules. Instead it provides high-level guidance by way of policies and objectives and establishes the framework for Otago's regional and district plans in which resource management policies, objectives and rules will sit.
