Change No. 1 to the Bay of Plenty Regional Policy Statement (Criteria) (390 KB, doc) became operative and was incorporated into the Regional Policy Statement on 26 June 2008.

Change No. 1 incorporates into the policy statement policies, methods and criteria for assessing  specified matters referred to in section 6 of the Resource Management Act 1991, by:

  • Amending chapters 1 (Introduction), 5 (Resource Management Practice), 15 and 16, and Appendix A (Functions of Regional and District Councils under the Act); and
  • Inserting new Appendices F (criteria for assessing specified matters in the Bay of Plenty region) and G (criteria for assessing whether subdivision, use and development).
