Make a submission on Variation 1

Following notification of Proposed Plan Change 1, Pare Hauraki raised concerns with Waikato Regional Council that they had not been consulted with in the manner required by the RMA. Council withdrew part of the proposed plan change on 3 December 2016 in order for consultation to take place.

On 10 April, Waikato Regional Council notified Variation 1 to Healthy Rivers/Wai Ora: Proposed Plan Change 1. Read the public notice here [PDF, 84 KB]. Members of the public and organisations are invited to make a submission on the Variation to ensure that your concerns are heard.
