The Regional Soil Plan (PDF 107 KB) became operative on 9 October 2000.

Plan Change 1 to the Regional Soil Plan was made operative on 1 September 2003. The plan change affected the plan's definition of "soil". There were no changes to the rules.

The Plan applies to the whole of the Wellington region, except the coastal marine area. It identifies issues to be addressed so that the effects of soil disturbance and vegetation clearance can be sustainably managed. Objectives, policies, and methods (including rules) have been adopted to address these issues.

You can browse the Soil Plan rules by clicking on the highlighted regional rules link at the left of this screen.

The Plan can be downloaded from the document bar on the right of this screen.
