TANK Plan Change (PC 9)
Hawke’s Bay Regional Council is proposing to add new rules to the Regional Resource Management Plan to manage water quality and quantity for the Tūtaekurī, Ahuriri, Ngaruroro and Karamū (TANK) catchments.
The TANK plan change includes rules that affect how land will be used and will establish limits for the taking (abstraction) of water.
- Submissions on the TANK Plan Change closed in mid August. HortNZ lodged a submission, along with almost 250 others.
- HortNZ also made a further submission in November 2020.
- Preparations are underway for the hearings which are expected to occur in May and June this year (2021). HortNZ will appear at the hearing, and be calling expert evidence to support the main points made in its submissions.
