On 9 April 2016 the Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery amended the Canterbury Land and Water Regional Plan (LWRP) and the proposed Canterbury Air Regional Plan (pCARP) under section 27(1)(a) of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011 (CER Act). The amendments enable the ongoing operation of Burwood Landfill for the disposal of earthquake waste through to 2021.
Changes were previously made to the Canterbury Land and Water Regional Plan under Action 46 of the Land Use Recovery Plan to enable the continued operation of the landfill within the existing landfill footprint. However, following further assessment of resource consent requirements and consultation with the community in relation to those applications, it was identified that further changes to regional planning documents were necessary. These further changes are the subject of the Minister’s amendments on 9 April 2016.
