National Environmental Standard Plantation Forestry

The National Environmental Standards for Production Forestry Regulations (NES PF Reg) became operative on 01 May 2018 and the District Plan cannot be inconsistent with these Standards, hence the need to amend the District Plan where appropriate.

The changes deal with any duplications and conflicts between the District Plan and the National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry.

Council resolved at its October 2018 meeting to approve and make the plan changes operative.

Seal of plan change can be found here.

Public notice can be found here.

Further information on the National Environmental Standard for Plantation Forestry can be found here.
