Updated Limits

Section 15A of the Land and Water Plan (South Coastal Canterbury) sets a nitrogen allocation framework to help deliver community aspirations for water quality. Schedules 29, 30 and 31 of the Land and Water Plan describe a methodology to update nitrogen limits in the plan for South Coastal Canterbury (these being the flexibility caps, maximum caps, and load limits). Following each update to the OVERSEER nutrient model, the nitrogen limits will be recalculated by the Council and updated limits published here.

Schedule 29 – Updated Flexibility Caps (last updated: June 2018)
Schedule 30 – Updated Maximum Caps (last updated: June 2018)
Schedule 31 – Catchment Load Limits (last updated: December 2017)
