This layer applies to an area of land within the Te Kauwhata Structure Plan area that is potentially contaminated by past horticultural activities (vineyards). The area at Te Kauwhata is described in “Ground Contamination Report Te Kauwhata Rezoning" Prepared by Tonkin and Taylor Ltd (2009).
The purpose of the policy area overlay is to ensure developers are aware that this land is potentially contaminated and that some activities may need resource consent based on criteria in the rule or through the NES where there is a risk to human health. Relates to the implementation of the District Plan under the Resource Management Act (1991), and may be subject to various limitations and conditions. These features are a spatial representation of the policies and objectives of the Waikato District Plan and indicate where policies, overlays and District Plan rules apply.
