The following operative plan change has been made to the Marlborough Sounds Resource Management Plan and has been incorporated into the Plan.
The Plan has a range of subdivision rules applying to each of the different zones. There are also special subdivision rules, which essentially allow non-compliance with discretionary activity allotment sizes to be assessed as discretionary activities, rather than non-complying. A question of interpretation over the status of special subdivision provisions in Rural Zones has resulted in a need for the provisions to be clarified through a plan change. The proposed change is to return the Plan to a state for special subdivisions in the Rural One Zone that existed immediately prior to the Plan becoming operative.
