Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan

Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan

The Council has reviewed the Marlborough Regional Policy Statement, the Marlborough Sounds Resource Management Plan and the Wairau/Awatere Resource Management Plan to create a single resource management document for the district.

The Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan (PMEP) sets out what people can do on their land and how it may be developed. It also guides how individuals, businesses and the wider community may use public resources such as fresh water and coastal space.

By combining the various resource management policy statements and plans required by the Resource Management Act, Marlborough will have a single planning document enabling the integrated management of all the region’s natural and physical resources.

At this time, the Plan does not include the provisions relating to marine farming, which are still subject to review.

Note — A volume containing Statutory Acknowledgements relating to Te Tau Ihu Settlement legislation will form part of the MEP. However, it is not part of the formal notification process.
