Otago Regional Policy Statement and Land and Water Regional Plan

The Otago Regional Policy Statement (ORPS) gives us a framework to create policies and helps work out the priorities so we can make progress on significant resource management issues facing the region. You will sometimes see the Otago Regional Policy Statement referred to as "RPS". 

The Land and Water Regional Plan sets out provisions and rules to enable the freshwater vision set out in the ORPS.
