Summary of Submissions

The summary of submissions is a concise summary of all the submissions that have been received.  The summaries clearly set out District Plan changes the submitters want to see.  They are summarised by submitter and by topic/chapter. Each submission has been numbered and every decision requested has been assigned a unique submission point reference number.

Further submissions

A further submission is a submission made in support of, or opposition to, another person or party’s submission. Further submissions must be limited to those matters raised in submissions. The structure of the further submission form is dictated by Form 6 of the Resource Management (Forms, Fees, and Procedure) Regulations 2003. It provides an opportunity to assess the effect an original submission may have on you, and to have your views considered by the Council alongside the original submission.

The following persons may make a further submission in support of or in opposition to a submission:

  • Any person representing a relevant aspect of the public interest;
  • Any person who has an interest in the plan greater than the interest that the general public has; or
  • The local authority itself.
