At its meeting on 7 April 2011 Council resolved to engage an independent Commissioner to hear and make decisions on submissions on proposed Council Plan Change 22 to the NRMP. A hearing was held on 14 July 2011 and the Council publicly notified its decisions on Saturday 5 November 2011.
A copy of the Commissioner’s Report on Hearing and Decisions on Submissions along with the public notice of decisions is available for download under the ‘Original Documents’ section below.
Every submitter and further submitter was served with a copy of these decisions and under Cl.14 of the First Schedule of the RMA any submitter or further submitter was able appeal a provision or matter that was the subject of their submission to the Environment Court within 30 working days.
No appeals were lodged in relation to Plan Change 22 and, at its meeting on 23 February 2012, the Council resolved to approve the plan change and make it operative on 12 March 2012.
This Plan Change seeks to add 24 additional trees to Appendix 2 - Heritage Trees of the NRMP. These trees have been assessed by Council as justifying protection in the NRMP.
The NRMP has three categories of listed trees: Local, Landscape and Heritage. Heritage Trees receive the highest level of protection under the planning rules, with Local Trees being the least protected. Twelve of the current proposed trees have been assessed as meriting Heritage status, with ten in the Landscape category and two Local.
