Revocations and variations

58 Applications to revoke or vary WCOs

(1)

Section 216(1) and (2) of the RMA apply in respect of an application to revoke or vary a Canterbury WCO.

(2)

Despite anything in this subpart, the Minister may, instead of submitting an application to revoke or vary a Canterbury WCO to ECan under section 48(1)(b)(ii), recommend that the Canterbury WCO to which the application relates be amended if—

(a)

the Minister is of the opinion that—

(i)

the application should not be rejected; but

(ii)

because of the minor effect of the amendment, it is unnecessary for ECan to consider the application; and

(b)

both ECan and the original applicant for the WCO (if that person can be located) agree to the amendment.

(3)

The Governor-General may, by Order in Council made on the recommendation of the Minister under subsection (2), amend the WCO accordingly.
