One Plan - Intensive Land Use Information

The Environment Court's decision following Environmental Defence Society (EDS) and Wellington Fish and Game's declatory proceedings against Horizons Regional Council was made in March 2017. The declaration focus was on the implementation of rules that reduce leaching of nutrients from farms. The two organisations sought clarification around assessments of consent applications under intensive land use rules in Horizons’ One Plan. 
While we work our way through the implications of the decision, we have set up this page to house information related to Court's findings, such as Council papers, media releases, eNewsletters and helpful guides.
