Plan Change 4B (Groundwater allocation)

Plan Change 4B (Groundwater allocation) proposed to clarify and strengthen the provisions of the operative Water Plan for managing groundwater and avoiding over-allocation in Otago’s aquifers, without changing their intent. Other aspects of the proposal include establishing a new Schedule 4E which sets out matters to be considered when calculating the mean annual recharge for an aquifer.

Plan Change 4B was publicly notified on Saturday 17 May 2014. Following the submission and hearing process, the Council publicly notified its decision on the plan change on Saturday 13 December 2014. An appeal was resolved through mediation.

The resolution to make Plan Change 4B operative was made on 5 August 2015, and this was publicly notified on 15 August 2015. Plan Change 4B is operative from 1 September 2015.
