New Regional Plan
The Northland Regional Council has been working with many people to develop a draft Regional Plan, which will manage how we use fresh water, land, air and the coast.
The feedback period for the plan closed 23 September 2016, but you can still read the plan and view the feedback we received.
We are now reviewing all feedback received in order to help shape the proposed Regional Plan, due to be notified mid-2017.
Summary of submissions
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
