On this page you will find all details and documents related to the TANK decision and associated appeals.
The TANK Plan is currently subject to an Environment Court appeal process with 16 appellants (person or group making an appeal) submitting appeals against the TANK Plan decision, and 18 parties registering their special interest to proceedings (known as a Section 274 party).
Environment Court process to resolve these appeals is currently underway through mediation hearings and will continue into 2024.
The appeals have been annotated to assist mediation hearings can be found here.
While a majority of provisions of the TANK Plan change took immediate legal effect upon notification, some parts will not take effect until the Council makes the plan operative with all appeals having been heard and resolved.
All rules in the decision version of the TANK Plan change (9 September 2022) have legal effect.
These rules now supersede the rules in the notified version of the TANK Plan change, which took immediate legal effect when the TANK Plan change was notified on 2 May 2020.
Until the TANK Plan change rules are operative, both the TANK Plan change rules and the operative Regional Resource Management Plan (RRMP) apply. The more stringent activity status of the two relevant rules apply.
The Independent Hearing Panel made their decision on the submissions received on Proposed Plan Change 9. The decision was notified on 9 September 2022.
