ORC’s Proposed Plan Change 6AA to the Regional Plan: Water
Earlier this month the Otago Regional Council (ORC) notified a Proposed Plan Change 6AA to the Regional Plan: Water for Otago.
The plan change proposes to postpone the date at which conditions on discharge contaminant concentration and on nitrogen leaching come into force, from 1 April 2020 to 1 April 2026. According to ORC, the postponement will allow for better ‘alignment with the national direction being proposed by central government’.
Submissions on this proposed plan change close on Monday 4th November, 5pm.
A full review of the Water Plan is expected to have been completed by 2026.
