Legal status of plan changes
The proposed provisions of a Plan Change take legal effect once decisions are released, however, any proposed provision must be treated as operative (before or after decisions) if it is beyond challenge e.g. if the time for making submissions or appeals has closed and there are no submissions in opposition to it or appeals lodged against it, or if any appeals lodged against it have been resolved.
- Legal effect means any proposed provision must be considered, and if any proposed provision requires resource consent, this consent must be sought. The proposed provision is then given weight relative to any existing provision.
- Treated as operative means the provision is in full effect but is yet to be made formally operative (this requires public notification).
