New Regional Plan
The Northland Regional Council will be notifying the Proposed Regional Plan for submissions in early September 2017. The submission period will close mid-November 2017.
The Proposed Regional Plan is the updated ‘rule book’ for how Northland’s water, soil are and coast are used. It will replace the current three regional plans which are over 10 years old.
We worked with many people to develop a draft Regional Plan, which was released for public feedback in 2016. You can still read the plan and view the feedback we received.
Summary of feedback
Supporting information, technical reports are available below.
The draft regional plan also contains rules specific to the five Waiora Northland Water priority catchments. These catchment specific rules have come from the draft catchment plans. More information about the catchment management plans can be found at www.nrc.govt.nz/waiorafeedback
