Giving effect to the Proposed District Plan

The Council has received six appeals on the Decisions Version of the Proposed Plan. The chapters directly affected are 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, 13, 15, 17 and 20. In accordance with Section 86F of the Resource Management Act, any rules not affected by an appeal are treated as operative (and any previous rules in the 2003 Operative Plan are inoperative). Note however, that rules may be affected by an appeal even if not directly appealed. Therefore, while identification of the provisions under appeal can provide general guidance as to which rules will or will not be treated as operative by the Council, it is not definitive.

The appeals are currently at the mediation stage.

Appeals - updated 7 December 2017

Five appeals have been fully resolved and one partially resolved through mediation. The Environment Court has issued decisions and Consent Orders on these appeals. The decisions state that the appeals iare allowed to the extent that Hurunui District Council is directed to make amendments to the Proposed Hurunui District Plan. These amendments have been incorporated into the Decisions Version of the Proposed Hurunui District Plan.
