Submissions on Variations 1: Marine Farming and 1A: Finfish Farming closed on 26 February 2021. 112 submissions were received. The full submissions are available for viewing in the Aquaculture Variations section of the portal.
On 26 May 2021, Council publicly notified the summary of submissions pursuant to Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991. This also commenced the period for making further submissions.
Council subsequently received feedback on the summary of submissions which highlighted some irregularities in the summary content. Rather than re-notifying these individual points, Council has decided to withdraw the current summary and re-notify an updated summary of submissions as a whole in order to limit any confusion that could be caused by having dual summaries running for the process.
A date for re-notification is yet to be confirmed but will occur in the next few weeks.
