In response to appeals on our Council's decisions relating to the Coastal Environment and Natural Character overlays, our Council 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. Our Council sought direction from the Environment Court 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.
