Variation 3: Meretoto/Ship Cove Heritage Resource
Marlborough District Council is proposing to include Meretoto/Ship Cove and Motuara Island as a Heritage Resource in the Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan (PMEP). The site is already identified as having regional and national significance through non-regulatory methods. Including the site in the PMEP will result in planning provisions applying to the area, restricting the types of activities that can be undertaken in order to protect its significant cultural and heritage values.
Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga (HNZPT) have already added the site to the New Zealand Heritage List/Rārangi Kōrero as a ‘Historic Place Category 1’ (List number 9900). The Category 1 type listing identifies sites as being of ‘special or outstanding historical or cultural significance or value’.
Reports, hearing details and other related information will be posted on the hearing portal as they become available.
