Section 36 consent monitoring charges – Hawke’s Bay Regional Council

Aquanet developed a “Pollution Index” to rank the different types of resource consents for discharges to land and/or water held by the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council (HBRC). This Pollution Index is aimed at reflecting the potential adverse effects the activities may have on ecological and amenity/recreational values of surface water bodies, and was to be used to assist in the setting of charges on resource consent holders under S36 of the RMA. The original scoring index was delivered in 2010 and Aquanet is currently (as of May 2012) undertaking a review and update of the index.
