HortNZ's submission on Bay of Plenty Regional Council draft Plan Change 14: On-site Effluent Treatment Systems.
This plan change included minor amendments with significant impacts for the definitions of worker accommodation and building.
HortNZ has identified that the following area “B. Farming Activity/Intensive farming activity building size limit” in this Plan Change may have an impact on local growers. The proposed changes concern new standards that must be met in future for buildings over 3000m³ including glasshouses or packhouses.
