NOTE: All the rules in the Proposed Canterbury Land & Water Regional Plan have effect from 11 August 2012. (See Frequently Asked Questions for more information).
The purpose of stakeholder consultation is:
The Land & Water Regional Plan will replace Chapters 1 and 4 to 8 of the Natural Resources Regional Plan (NRRP) and Parts I, II and IV of the Land and Vegetation Management Regional Plan. The scope of the Land & Water Regional Plan is the management of land and water resources to the extent of regional council functions set out in section 30 of the Resource Management Act 1991, except those functions relating to the management of air quality and the coastal marine area.
There is a statutory requirement to consult, before the plan is notified, with the Ministry for the Environment, other government agencies that may be affected, affected local authorities and Ngai Tahu.
Development of the new plan also involved consultation with a range of key stakeholders, as well as with the public more generally. We have undertaken stakeholder consultation throughout the pre-notification stage of plan development. In addition to Ngai Tahu, the key stakeholders include major resource user groups, industry groups with whom Environment Canterbury is currently working in respect of land and water quality matters, representatives of primary sector industries and key recreation and conservation interest groups. Public consultation is now underway following completion of a working draft of the new land and water plan.
Anticipated notification date for proposed LWRP is for August 2012
