Plan Change for On-Site Wastewater
- Status: Operative 1 October 2012 for 'Change 3' operative 8 November 2014 for 'Variation 3'
- Date notified: 13 July 2011
- Date of decisions: 6 June 2012
'Change 3' amended rules in the Hawke's Bay Regional Resource Management Plan (RRMP).
'Variation 3' amended similar rules in the proposed Hawke's Bay Regional Coastal Environment Plan (pRCEP).
A hearing of submissions was held on 29 April 2012. Council decisions were issued on 6 June 2012. No Appeals were lodged.
The rules now adopt a more refined approach which focuses on locations where discharges from wastewater systems present a higher risk to the environment – such as sloping sections or near waterways. The new rules also contain a lot more detail about how wastewater systems must be designed, and what the Council's expectations are. More information about the purpose and contents of Change 3 can be found in the information sheet.
