The proposed TANK Plan change

The Proposed TANK Plan change introduces new ways to manage the land and waterways of the Tūtaekurī, Ahuriri, Ngaruroro and Karamū catchments.

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council notified the TANK plan change for submissions on 2 May 2020 and by the close of the submission period we had received a total of 240 submissions.  Copies of the original submissions and the summary of submissions are available on the TANK Submissions & Hearings page.

The Regional Council called for further submissions on 12 November 2020. We received 24 further submissions, all but one of the further submitters were primary submitters on the TANK Plan Change. 

The Hearing Report (also known as the Section 42A Report) was made available on 15 April 2021.

Hearings for the TANK Plan Change were held in late May, June and September 2021.

Copies of the submissions, the summary of submissions, the Hearing Report and more information about hearings is available on the TANK Submissions & Hearings page.

TANK Water Quality

We have created water quality dashboards - a tool for landowners and the community to understand water quality and ecosystem health within their sub-catchment.

You can use this information to guide and inform plans and on-farm practices, to improve water quality outcomes in your area.
