Plan Change 6 (PC6) is a catchment specific change to the Hawke's Bay Regional Resource Management Plan (RRMP) to address specific water quality and allocation issues in the
Tukituki catchment. It was considered and determined by an independent Board of Inquiry as part of a Proposal of National Significance also involving the Ruataniwha Water Storage
Scheme, with the final decision being released on 25 June 2015.
The establishment of a launch site on the Mahia Peninsula by Rocket Lab, a US corporation with a
New Zealand subsidiary, has opened up the opportunity for rocket tourism in the Wairoa District with
potential benefits for the Hawkeâ€™s Bay and Tairawhiti/Gisborne regions. It is believed a welldeveloped
tourism offering will significantly benefit the Wairoa District through growth in
employment and investment, improvement to the general economy and, as a consequence,
enhanced social outcomes to an area of regional New Zealand which requires a boost in terms of
economic and social wellbeing.
