The following operative plan change has been made to the Marlborough Sounds Resource Management Plan and has been incorporated into the Plan.
The RMA requires Councils to place a statement in their Regional Coastal Plans either setting out a coastal occupancy charges regime or to say they will not do so. Variation 2 inserts a new section into the Plan which in essence states that the Council considers the charges are justified, however there are a number of issues which need to be dealt with before a charging regime is introduced.
