The ‘Summary of Submissions’ is a report summarising all of the changes to the Proposed District Plan that submitters have asked for in their original submissions (these are sometimes referred to as ‘decisions requested’).

The reports summarise everyone’s submissions so you can get an overview of what people think about the Proposed District Plan. It’s particularly useful to those people who are eligible to, and want to, make further submissions.

The Summary of Submissions can be viewed here.

The Council publicly notified the summary of submissions on Monday 11 October 2021. People and organisations (those with an interest in the Proposed Plan that is greater than that of the public in general; or those who represent a relevant aspect of the public interest) were able to make ‘further submissions’.

The further submission period was open from on Monday 11 October 2021 and closed 5pm Tuesday 9 November 2021. 

Council prepared a Summary of Submissions in a couple of formats:

-  Summary of Submissions – By Provision
(to see summarised submissions made on each Proposed Plan chapter)

- Summary of Submissions - Electronic Spreadsheet click here

(enables you to undertake your own analysis of all summarised submissions filterable by submitter and provision)

A further submission is a submission that supports or opposes someone else’s submission. It can take a position on the entire submission or just a part of a submission, such as a particular change someone has asked for.

Further submissions are made after the original submission period has closed, when everyone has had a chance to review each other’s submissions (which are summarised in the Summary of Submissions).

A further submission cannot raise a new issue – it can only support or oppose others’ submission points. A further submission cannot take a ‘neutral’ position or make a general comment on a submission point.

You can make a further submission if:

  • You have an interest in the Proposed District Plan that is greater than that of the public in general; or
  • You represent a relevant aspect of the public interest.

You need to make sure that you specify the submission point that your further submission relates to. This information will be available in the Summary of Submissions.

The Council publicly notified the Summary of Submissions on Monday 11 October 2021.

The further submission period was open from Monday 11 October 2021 and closed at 5pm Tuesday 9 November 2021. 

 

You can make a further submission if:

  • You have an interest in the Proposed Plan that is greater than that of the public in general. For example, if a submission has been made to rezone land that you own.
  • You represent a relevant aspect of the public interest, such as an advocacy group or other collective.

If you fit the above criteria, you can make a further submission on the matter that affects you or your group, whether or not you have made an original submission.

If you have made an original submission this will still stand, so it may not be necessary to make a further submission that reiterates your original submission.

 

You can make a further submission online, or you can fill in a further submission form which will be available via our website and Council Offices.

When writing your further submission you will need to clearly identify the relevant parts of original submissions that you are submitting on. This includes;

  • Identifying the submission/submission point number that you are making a further submission on.
  • Stating if you oppose/support the submission point.
  • The reasons for your support/opposition, and
  • The decision you would like Council to make in relation to the submission (for example, whether they should reject or accept the point made by the original submitter).

Remember that a further submission cannot raise new issues. It can only comment on issues raised by other submitters already.

Here’s how you can lodge your further submission:

  • Email: districtplan@chbdc.govt.nz
  • Post: Central Hawke’s Bay District Council, PO BOX 127, Waipawa 4240
  • Drop off: Central Hawke’s Bay District Council Offices, 28 – 32 Ruataniwha Street, Waipawa
  • Please note: Further submissions are public information so everything that’s in it will be publicly available. You can ask for some of your details, like your phone number or email address, to be kept confidential.

The further submission period will be open from on Monday 11 October 2021. Further submissions must be received by the Council by 5pm on Tuesday 9 November 2021.

Once your further submission is lodged with Council, you must also send a copy to the person(s) who made the original submission on which you are commenting on, within 5 working days of lodging your submission with Council.

A full list of submitter contact addresses/emails will be available on the Submissions page.

Please note: Council will make all further submissions, including name and contact details, publicly available on Council’s website. Personal information will also be used for the administration of the submission process and will be made public.

Council notified the summary of Submissions and welcomed Further Submission on 11 October 2021. The period for accepting Further Submissions closed at 5pm Tuesday 9 November 2021. 

Now that further submissions have been received, Council officers will consider the points made in all original and further submissions and publish a report (known as a Section 42A report) with recommended changes to the Proposed District Plan in light of those submissions points.

Hearings will be held in 2022 where submitters will be able to present their views to a hearing panel, who will decide on what the final version of the District Plan should look like. Submitters will be contacted with details of the hearing, including arrangements for appearing and the makeup of the hearing panel, in advance of the hearing.

The hearings panel will make recommendations to the Council who will then make decisions on the content of the District Plan. The 'Decisions Version' is expected to be available in late 2022. Depending on whether any parts of this decision are appealed, we expect to have an operational District Plan by mid-2023 at the earliest.

Some rules in the Proposed District Plan had immediate legal effect when the Plan was publicly notified, in accordance with s86B Resource Management Act 1991.  These provisions relate to matters of national significance such as the protection of areas of significant indigenous vegetation or habitats of indigenous fauna, and historic heritage.  Rules with immediate legal effect are identified in the Plan with a red hammer symbol.

In addition, the following rules have had no submissions in opposition and are required to be treated as operative under s86F Resource Management Act 1991.  This means the Operative District Plan rule no longer applies.

There is also the ability for the Environment Court to order rules to have legal effect from a different date, but no application for such an order has been made at this stage.
