The integrated proposed Natural Resources Plan for the Wellington region will replace the five operative plans for managing the coast, soil, discharges to land, fresh water and air.

Decisions on the proposed Natural Resources Plan (PNRP) were publicly notified on 31 July 2019, and from the date of the public notice the proposed Natural Resources Plan was amended in accordance with those decisions (see Decisions version).

The period for filing appeals with the Environment Court on the Decisions version of the PNRP closed on 18 September 2019.

The Appeals version identifies which parts of the PNRP are subject to appeals and therefore may change as a result of the appeals process. It also identifies which parts of the PNRP are not subject to any appeals and rules which are therefore deemed operative. This version includes some minor amendments (Clause 16) to the Decisions version 2019.

Some appeals have been resolved in full or in part through mediation and/or court hearings. Details are shown in the portal quick links “Appeals resolved” and updated in the appeals version of the plan “Appeals version”.
