Hearings on the Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan

Hearing Concluded

On 26 February 2019 the MEP Hearing Panel held a hearing for the last of the pre-determined hearing topics. Following, a final opportunity for submitters to identify any missed submission points was provided and a hearing held on these matters on 29 April 2019. After the completion of that final day of hearing, the Panel adjourned the hearing portion of the process and have started deliberations.

As the Panel consider the evidence and submissions, further information may be required. If minutes are issued requesting any such information, these will be available to view on the Marlborough District Council website.

Due to the volume and content of submissions and the extent of subsequent evidence and legal submissions provided at the hearing, the deliberation process will be lengthy and a specific date for issuing the decision cannot be provided. However, the Panel are hopeful to release their decision in September/October 2019. Please keep in mind that this may change as the deliberations progress. If this is the case, we will update the timeline.
