It gives you the chance to consider the impact an original submission may have on you, and to have your views considered alongside the original submission. 

The following people/groups can make a further submission:

  • any person representing a relevant aspect of the public interest
  • any person who has an interest in the Proposed Plan Change that is greater than the interest that the general public has
  • Horowhenua District Council itself.

A further submission can only support or oppose submissions that have already been made, and cannot introduce additional matters. Any further submission must clearly state the number of the original submission to which the further submission relates. Please refer to the summary table within the summary of submissions report on Council’s website which outlines the relevant specific point reference (for example 05/00.01). 

Further submissions must be made in writing in the form prescribed (Form 6) in the Resource Management (Forms, Fees and Procedure) Regulations 2003.
