Guidance Note on implementation of the

Proposed Thames-Coromandel District Plan - Appeals Version

 

The Thames-Coromandel District Council currently has two district plans - the Operative District Plan and the Proposed District Plan - Appeals Version.

 

WHY TWO PLANS?

 

The Resource Management Act 1991 requires all District Councils to prepare a District Plan for their district.  District Plans describe the district's significant resource management issues and set out the objectives, polices and rules to address these issues. 

 

PROPOSED DISTRICT PLAN

 

The Council issued its' decisions on the Proposed District Plan on 29 April 2016.  From this date all rules in the Plan have 'legal effect,' meaning that a rule must be considered when undertaking land use and subdivision activities. 

 

The period for lodging an appeal to the Environment Court on the Council's decisions closed on 13 June.  Where an appeal has been lodged against an objective, policy or provision in the Plan, that part of the Plan continues to have legal effect but the 'weighting' afforded to it must be considered on a 'case by case' basis. 

 

Those parts of the Proposed District Plan that are not subject to appeal can be 'treated as operative', and the corresponding objectives, policies and provisions in the Operative District Plan fall away.

 

OPERATIVE DISTRICT PLAN

 

The Operative District Plan continues to have legal effect to the extent that any corresponding objectives, policies and provisions in the Proposed District Plan have been appealed.  As appeals are resolved these provisions will fall away and the Proposed District Plan will be relied on.

 

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH PARTS OF THE PLAN HAVE BEEN APPEALED?

 

The provisions of the Plan which are subject to an Environment Court appeal have been highlighted inREDand annotated with the Council's appeal number (e.g. A46).  An index sheet is provided to align the Council's number with the Courts case number.

 

WHICH PLAN SHOULD I USE?

 

While the Council still has both an Operative District Plan and a Proposed District Plan it is necessary to comply with both Plans, except where a rule is deemed to be able to be 'treated as operative' in the Proposed District Plan. 

 

Any rules in the Proposed District Plan which cannot be 'treated as operative' still have legal effect and are afforded 'weighting' on a case by case basis, depending on the nature and extent of the appeal.   


 

Guidance Note on implementation of the Proposed Thames-Coromandel District Plan - Appeals Version

We currently have two district plans - the Operative District Plan and the Proposed District Plan - Appeals Version.

Why two plans?

The Resource Management Act 1991 requires all District Councils to prepare a District Plan for their district.  District Plans describe the district's significant resource management issues and set out the objectives, polices and rules to address these issues. 

The Proposed District Plan

Our Council issued its decisions on the Proposed District Plan on 29 April 2016.  From this date all rules in the Plan have 'legal effect,' meaning that a rule must be considered when undertaking land use and subdivision activities. 

The period for lodging an appeal to the Environment Court on our Council's decisions closed on 13 June.  Where an appeal has been lodged against an objective, policy or provision in the Plan, that part of the Plan continues to have legal effect but the 'weighting' afforded to it must be considered on a 'case by case' basis. 

Those parts of the Proposed District Plan that are not subject to appeal can be 'treated as operative', and the corresponding objectives, policies and provisions in the Operative District Plan fall away

Operative District Plan

The Operative District Plan continues to have legal effect to the extent that any corresponding objectives, policies and provisions in the Proposed District Plan have been appealed.  As appeals are resolved these provisions will fall away and the Proposed District Plan will be relied on.

How do I know which parts of the Plan have been appealed?

The provisions of the Plan which are subject to an Environment Court appeal have been highlighted in RED and annotated with the Council's appeal number (e.g. A46).  

Which Plan should I use?

While we still have both an Operative District Plan and a Proposed District Plan it is necessary to comply with both Plans, except where a rule is deemed to be able to be 'treated as operative' in the Proposed District Plan. 

Any rules in the Proposed District Plan which cannot be 'treated as operative' still have legal effect and are afforded 'weighting' on a case by case basis, depending on the nature and extent of the appeal.
