Variation Provisions

The Variation 1 document provides a suite of provisions for aquaculture activities being proposed for inclusion in the Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan. Variation 1A provides additional provisions specifically for finfish farming.

Mapping will take you to an interactive map showing Coastal Marine Units (CMU). Zooming in on these units provide further detail in the form of Aquaculture Marine Areas (AMA), Finfish Aquaculture Marine Areas (FAMA), Aquaculture Settlement Areas (ASA) and specific marine farms.

Update: The originally notified proposed Map 14 contained an error in that it depicted two new aquaculture management areas in Onapua Bay, Tory Channel (Coastal Management Unit 31). These sites are subject to a separate variation process that is yet to be approved by the Council for notification. Consultation with respect to these potential sites is ongoing. Proposed Map 14 was replaced with an updated version on 7 December 2020 in the following schedule of changes documents.
