This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Resource Legislation Amendment Bill.
Clause 2 is amended so that Part 5 of the Bill (which amends the Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf (Environmental Effects) Act 2012) will come into force on 1 June 2017.
The amendment to clause 16, which amends new section 34A(1A), ensures that the processes of new Part 5, as well as those of Part 1 of Schedule 1, apply.
Clause 37 amends new section 58D(3)(d)(ii) to align the language with the change previously made to subparagraph (i) of new section 58D(3)(d).
Amendments to clauses 38, 52, 125, 135, 148, 151, 152, and Schedule 2 correct technical errors or clarify the drafting.
New clause 49A amends section 79 to ensure that the processes of new Parts 4 and 5 of Schedule 1 are also available in the review of policy statements and plans.
Clause 137B is amended to align new section 149ZC(2) and (4) with the new notification provisions in Part 6AA.
Clause 137C corrects and simplifies cross-references in Part 6AA and aligns the wording in new section 149ZCC(1) with related provisions in Part 6.
Clauses 138B, 138C, 138E, and 138F amend the designations and heritage order provisions in Part 8 of the Resource Management Act 1991 by applying new notification provisions in Part 6AA of the Act. This Supplementary Order Paper amends those clauses to specify more comprehensively which notification provisions in Part 6AA apply for the purpose of notifications under Part 8.
Clauses 138C and 138F are amended to clarify when the notification obligation is triggered in new sections 169(1A) and 190(1A), respectively, where there has been a request for further information or notice given of an intention to commission a report. Where sections 169 and 190 apply, the requiring authority or heritage protection authority (as the case requires) is in a similar position to an applicant for a resource consent under the current section 95C. The changes express the requirements in the same terms as in current section 95C. This clarification should be familiar to and assist territorial authorities.
Clause 138F is also amended to correct a reference to the relevant authority in new section 190(7).
Clause 217 is amended so that a decommissioning plan will not be required to specify when the relevant infrastructure will be decommissioned.
In Schedule 1, clauses 21, 25, 31, and 33 are amended to ensure that the processes of 1 or both of new Parts 4 and 5, are available in addition to Part 1 of Schedule 1.
The other amendments to Schedule 1 ensure that the relevant provisions apply to both designations and heritage orders.
