Pare Hauraki get changes to healthy Waikato River plan
Waikato Regional Council wants feedback on its intention to reinstate the area in the north-east of the Waikato River catchment into is plan to improve the health of the Waikato and Waipa rivers.
The area was withdrawn from the plan at the end of 2016 to enable full consultation with Pare Hauraki.
The variation includes some amendments arising from consultation with Pare Hauraki, and also proposes extensions of 20 months to some dates to enable landowners more time due to the delay.
The more than 1000 submissions received when the Healthy Rivers/Wai Ora proposed plan change was first notified remain valid and do not need to be re-lodged.
The public will have until May 23 to make a submission on the variation.
