Nutrient Management - Supporting Information

The following documents support the Plan Change 2 and Plan Change 3 processes, and the more broadly focused Our Freshwater Future planning. They include evaluation of the One Plan's nutrient management provisions, and the technical reporting that informs the planning processes that follow. Reports used in the evaluation ('section 32 evaluation') of plan change proposals can be found here.
