On 17 May 2012, the Marlborough District Council notified Plan Change 60 to the Wairau/Awatere Resource Management Plan. The period for making submissions on the Plan Change closed on 15 June 2012 and 11 submissions were received.

The Resource Management Act 1991 requires the Council to now publicly notify the availability of the submissions made on the proposed change to the Plan and the availability of a summary of those submissions. This summary, together with the submissions in full, may be inspected without fee at any of the following locations at any time that these places are open to the public:

  • The Marlborough Library, Arthur Street, Blenheim

The following persons may make a further submission in support of or in opposition to any of the submissions already received.

  • Any person representing a relevant aspect of the public interest; and
  • Any person that has an interest in the plan greater than the interest that the general public has.

Further submissions must be received within 10 working days of this notice. It is important that your further submission follows the prescribed format of Form 6 of the Resource Management (Form, Fees and procedures) Regulations 2003. To assist you, we have prepared a further submission form that follows the prescribed format that is available from the places listed above or from the Council’s website.

Within 5 working days of lodging a further submission with the Council, you must serve a copy on the person who made the submission to which your further submission relates. The postal address of submitters is also available at the locations listed above.

Once the closing date for lodging further submissions has passed, the Council will hold a hearing to consider the submissions and further submissions that have been lodged and will then issue a decision on the plan change. Anyone who has made a submission or further submission, and who has indicated that they wish to be heard, will have the right to attend the hearings and to present their submission or further submission.

On receiving notice of a decision on the plan change, any submitter or further submitter may refer the decision to the Environment Court for further consideration if they are in disagreement with or are dissatisfied with the decision made by the Council.
