15/10/2012 
  • Auckland Council Regional Plan: Farm Dairy Discharges
  • Auckland Council Regional Plan: Sediment Control

The National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2011
(Freshwater NPS) sets out the objectives and policies for freshwater
management under the Resource Management Act 1991.

Councils must have regard to the Freshwater NPS in consenting decisions.
The Freshwater NPS also requires the insertion of policy A4 directly into the
Auckland Council Regional Plan: Farm Dairy Discharges and the Auckland
Council Regional Plan: Sediment Control. Policy A4 requires the council
to consider specific criteria when making decisions on a resource consent
application. The remaining objectives and policies will be incorporated into
the Unitary Plan for Auckland.

The Freshwater NPS and the updated Auckland Council Regional Plan: Farm
Dairy Discharges and Auckland Council Regional Plan: Sediment Control can
be viewed on the Auckland Council website.
