Hawke's Bay Oil and Gas Plan Change - Background Information Review

The Hawke’s Bay Regional Council is preparing a draft plan change, which will consider options for prohibiting oil and gas activities in the region’s productive aquifers, aquifer recharge areas, surface water bodies (i.e. rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands and estuaries) and the coastal marine environment.
To help support the plan change and facilitate community feedback, a background information review has been undertaken and is reported in this document. The report is organised around the following areas, which are briefly summarised below:
 Oil and Gas Activities
 Oil and Gas in Hawkes Bay
 Regulatory Environment
 Environmental Context
 Economic Context
 Environmental Risk
The report also identifies three possible options for the plan change.
